We walked and walked for many ages-
Our goal was always on the horizon,
As such, we never reached it.
We realized after some time,
that it wasn’t that which laid on the horizon,
but the horizon itself we desired.

These images are journeys into deep dream realities. My practice is process-led- images begin from a type of unmitigated chaos and over time become articulated in terms of form and space. To my mind they become virtual places. These are not fixed destinations but gateways to the Transcendent. Form is vehicle for the Formless. The process itself is a way of deep meditation and prayer. The world of dream and imagination occupying an equal place in the structure of "Reality"- Mind as the central terminal of experience is made up of these subtle and subjective realities beyond anything so-called objective. Nature is a constant presence, as is Spirit. Visions of landscapes, clouds, water, light and wind, natural patterns, creatures, fractal geometries, complexity and infinity; processes of transformation and evolution of consciousness; realities permeated by super-sensory music .
Embedded in everything is the nature of Mind and the deep Collective Unconscious, itself permeated by universal patterns- multi-dimensional and multi-sensory. These elements to me, reflect and embody the many dimensions and emanations of One.
It is important to note that these imagined spaces calls on the viewer’s active looking and participation within the pictorial space and over time where an unfolding of the visual field occurs and different elements seem to emerge out of the image and come to life in the mind of the beholder. This can become a deeply subjective dialogue between the image and the viewer and a dynamic and transformational space of lucid perception.
