Macrocosm to microcosm, the Universe is connected to us and acts as a repository for all that we are.
The vastness of space is equatable to the Shadow within us all. Swirling within that darkness are an infinite number of brilliant stars, the literal light illuminating the way within ourselves. They are the guideposts that we seek and travel toward to take us out of the dark, to bring us peace and enlightenment. Nebulae in the formation of new systems are as images of thoughts coalescing and becoming real within our mind. They are thought materializing.
Images from the Hubble telescope are my visual inspiration. They show the deep darkness that exists outside ourselves, outside our ordinary reality. Transcendent and atmospheric, my paintings present a way for us to stop and listen to our heart.
