I have always been fascinated by the circle and its infinite nature, cyclical and eternal. Although a human abstraction of what is truly, in nature, a sphere, spiral or vortex, I believe exploring and decoding this abstraction is vital to an understanding of the universal macro and microcosms and to a fuller understanding of oneself.
These works are my truest voice but are only infrequently attempted. Not due to lack of interest by any means, they are my passion. Instead, my apprehension is from the understanding that once I start, I cannot stop until it is done. Obsession overtakes me in an attempt to penetrate and fill the structure, diving deeper and deeper into the details. My physical body is cast off and ignored as if it had no meaning, no usefulness, to the point where a feeling of atrophy sets in. At the same time my physical world is dying, my mental world is expanding. My thoughts are overflowing into a vast emptiness. I feel nothing and everything. I feel like the ascetic in the cave, striving to look towards the light, suspecting the shadows as a lie and nearly blinding myself in the process. When every space if filled, I awake from my trance with a fullness, and a hunger. Sadness and satisfaction intermingle and embrace, doing their delicate dance. My job is done for now, the pain and pleasure of a mundane physicality are calling. So I answer and wait patiently for the cycle to begin anew.
