My work explores the connection between art and the developing collective consciousness.
Art has always had a reciprocal relationship to what is known or experienced. This leads to its ability to expose a new idea or to report and capture the human experience. Art has kept in step with the insights about our relationship with the physical world. As our understanding becomes more complicated art needs to expand to encompass the experiences that are possible. This has led to the expansion of acceptable art forms as well as materials. The logical destination is where the art world is now, where any materials or approach can be used as a vehicle for art.
Today's art acts as a barometer as to what we can perceive, expressing where our minds are. The consciousness needs to evolve by challenging and growing what we know and perceive. Art will allow us to pursue the next level of consciouness.
This allows for the continuation of a deeper connection between our consciousness and the universe. We've learned to see beyond our eyes and to act beyond our hands, our everyday perception has grown to look beyond ourselves. Once this barrier has been breached, the possibilities become endless and expansive. Artwork that embraces this journey will serve as a bridge to carry more people to consider new levels of interaction with the universe, thus fueling the movement of greater depths of understanding and furthering what is possible with the mind.
