When I was a child I found myself at the bottom of the pool looking up at the water's surface. I recall such a sense of peace basking in the blue and white light. Getting off the plane in New York for the first time in 1996 I had the same overwhelming sensation as I looked up at the crystal clear light emanating down on the city. Ever since those seminal moment I have been very connected with and moved by images of light. Via a meditative process the pieces reveal themselves through trial and error. The work takes me as well as the audience on a journey of reflection, hope and awakening. The viewer experiences a tension; playfulness and authority, commerce and culture, tenderness and violence. Through these themes I celebrate life and all it’s textures, tempos and colors. The intention is to create visually arresting works that makes one stop and reflect.
