“Ineffable”

ineffable: [ in-ef-uh-buhl ] adjective. Incapable of being expressed in words; unspeakable; unutterable; indescribable.

Experiences in life are hidden by our mundane and corpoeal reality. Reality is our perception and how we process the experience. There is no one objective reality. Reality is a thing to explore not to concur. I believe that we are nothing more than the results of causative phenomenon and the experiences through perception of this phenomenon that is ever shifting.

I am looking to find these hidden things, these hidden things within ourselves, within the experience of the infinite nature of reality. By creating this work, I set the conditions of self initiation to link the divine or divine intervention of experiential reality. Art  is not just a visual object. It is an experience even if it seems stationary. As the viewer you are participating and creating your own experience. Mixing the pictures and symbolism, it can be ever changing or never changing. Your perception is key into weaving your reality into something fantastical.

By creating this work, I set the conditions of self initiation to link the divine intervention of ephemeral reality. Through this intermediary of the creative process I see the possible outcomes of the present, future and of course the past. Seeing the illusion of a stable reality fall away (even just for a brief moment) to perceive that ineffable nature of reality in its infinite possibilities. 

Perception is reality and reality is strange.
