Patterns and layers are both integral parts of my work. I often experience a series of geometric fractal patterns most commonly characterized as phosphenes, visuals that occur when one’s eyes are closed. I experience phosphenes frequently during meditative states as neon pastel, complex shapes that are in constant motion. I experience waking reality, nature and the dream time as an infinite number of layered patterns, all interacting with each other, creating an environment.I create in layers to represent the multi-faceted/multi-dimensional quality that pervades reality and consciousness. Much of my work is influenced from various lucid dreaming experiences, spaces, and beings that I continue to explore. I am interested in what catalyzes this sensory phenomena and how these subconscious visual imprints can be embodied as objects and visual patterns.
Rhythm, repetition, and symmetry are all considered while I create and arrange shapes. I want to continue to explore the complex subtlety of these properties and their ability to give life to visual patterns. My intention is to create a rhythm and depth between shapes that connect people and evoke a serene, tranquil and uplifting feeling.
