Statement from the artist:
Creating otherworldly backdrops for mystical iconography has long been a driving force in my work. Wormholes, starscapes and portals serve as monuments to something greater than myself. Through the process of making this work, I attempt to share my vision of a higher power and purpose.
The scenes captured in this work show the transition between two different realities using cosmic structures, hands of worship and blank wooden backgrounds. The high contrast between the bare wood and painted imagery creates a surreal environment detached from our current time and place. The slumped-over bodies depict an awkward sense of discomfort and yearning. They are suspended in transitional acts of giving and receiving. The scenes show a before-and-after story not completely revealed to the viewer.
My primary intention is to show universal themes of love, loss and redemption - subjects that transcend race or creed; worlds too far away to resemble any one place; and sacred rituals that could be part of any culture.
