An Unscientific Exploration of the Mind.
Selected Works 2019 - 2021
We all think, feel, observe, judge, imagine and remember. There is a commonality of experience which I explore in this series. What interests me is the possibility of tapping into a universal consciousness. I am interested in the way the mind works. Without it, we could not have subjective awareness.
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 don't know, that we can't see the mind allows me the freedom to probe our interior space and play with possibility to encourage viewers to reflect upon what they see, think, feel and know, in other words to stimulate self awareness.
Using gold and copper gel markers on black paper, I hint at a spiritual component while embracing contradictions. I also hint at humor Often, I present mind as pulsing energy in circular forms.
