STATEMENT

I am interested in humanity’s capacity for growth and potential. My work focuses on human transformation, and the role mankind plays in personal and group evolution and consciousness. Our species is becoming more conscious; humanity is on the brink of changing from one identity to the next. To break down the emotional, physical and mental aspects of our persona creates a fascinating interplay between spirit and matter as we go through the process of mastering our self, our thought patterns and our subconscious beliefs. The potential for growth and empowerment follows—while one structure is broken down another is being reconstructed to better serve us. How can we most powerfully participate in releasing old attachments? How can we improve ourselves, and technology for the spiritual advancement of humanity? This entire journey, from the darkness of unconsciousness, through continuous organic transformation to enlightenment and everything involved upon this awakening are subjects I chose to explore.
