We all think, feel, observe, judge, imagine and remember. There is a commonality of experience. In this series, I inquire into consciousness.
 

Despite all the psychological theories, philosophical debates and neurologic investigations into exactly what the mind is, the mind is still an enigma. The fact that we can't
see it allows me the freedom to probe our interior space and 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. In contrast, I use gold usually to investigate the ordinary, everyday mind, only alluding  to what I call the Large Mind, a universal consciousness. 

In ancient alchemy, copper was represented as the transformation of the soul. It was considered to be sacred to the Greeks and Romans who associated the metal with the Goddess Aphrodite/Venus. But like gold, copper paradoxically functions here to investigate the ordinary everyday mind, only in some instances alluding to the universal.

In mostly circular gold and copper configurations 
on black paper, I create my own (subjective) context and define images (objectively) as facts. Humor arises from this paradoxical conjunction to encourage viewers to reflect upon what they see, think, feel and know: in other words to stimulate self-awareness.
