In this large series of drawings, I explore consciousness (some- times with humor). Using gold and copper inks on black paper, I allude to the Large Mind--universal consciousness--and, paradoxically, map the ordinary, everyday mind to encourage reflection.
Despite the psychological theories, philosophical debates and neurologic investigations into exactly what the mind is, the mind remains an enigma. The fact that we can't see it allows me the freedom to play with possibility.
Historically, gold has been associated with the spiritual and has been used in artworks to evoke a transcendental state conducive to reflection and meditation while in ancient alchemy, copper represented the transformation of the soul. It was sacred to the Greeks and Romans.
