“Just a Feeling”
Acrylic painting on 16x20” wood panel
30”x40” acrylic on canvas | Words Don’t Teach
My little brother is having a baby. Im excited, but it got me thinking about how not ready I am to have a kid myself. A baby, to me, is like a point blank aim at my freedom and life. I’ve heard from many about the unexplainable joy of bringing new life into the world. But their words have yet to penetrate my fear. Maybe words don’t teach. Maybe it’s only life experience that actually grounds us in our knowing. Or could be my own monsters making a mess of the idea of all this.

This piece is intended to express my feeling of carrying my own body, almost as a separate object, as my disconnect between my inner self and my body are still in the process of reconnecting by virtue of an accident from a few years back.

“Scent of Dust”
I have the choice of identifying myself with my family and I’s past plight, or I can choose to identify myself with my current state of becoming as an individual. From the dust of the past to the here and now, I flip back and forth from knowing myself through the lens of past remnants vs. the lens of all that I can become.

This series is my visual interpretation of pure energy, if we could see it with the naked eye. “Orbs” is my inner nonphysical soul i am always having a conversation with. This series and “Diary” are a mirror reflection of those conversations as i experience life, and reemerge into new enlightenment and growth.

This series is a visual diary, but more specifically, it is the embodiment of the human condition in which i have or am experiencing. This series is having a never ending conversation with “Orbs” series. “Orbs” focuses on a visual interpretation of energy. It is my inner soul that I am always falling back on in order to get a broader view of my human experience. I am having, and will be having, a life long conversation with my inner being. These two series are a reflection of that conversation.
