As the creative process emerges through my drawing and sculpture, it feels as if I cross through a threshold from the ordinary world to the non-ordinary. A visual language of memory, symbols, dreams and imagery stirs within me and awakens cellular memories of ancient cultures. For me, the creative process is like a trance journey, one where I feel a connection to the descending energy of Spirit. From this journey fragments of artistic ideas begin to activate and emerge.
I work to translate these visceral and subtle ideas into both two-dimensional and three dimensional form. In this particular series of sculpture, I have used wire and paper-machete, layers of color, and textures to evoke feeling tones and ancient memories, and to explore prevailing notions of time, human history and humor.
