My art tries to parse out depths visually and in connection, underpinned by congenital differences from the norm.
“If the doors of perception were cleansed,
everything would appear to man as it is,
Our lack of sight defines us.
That definition of ourselves is constantly refined and outright changed by scientists, physicists and mathematicians, by philosophers, writers and artists. Their work shows us what we don’t see, where we lack sight. They make visible the negative spaces and dark matter and energy that interweave what we think is the whole of the perceivable universe.
We are continuous with the universe. This seems so obvious, and yet easy so very easy to be oblivious to. A fault I share, a reminder I am glad to get.
“You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.”
Alan Watts. Philosopher, writer
