a part of an enormous cosmic whirlpool where life is the rarest
element. I imagine myself as a slow nuclear explosion reflecting
light, dust, air, sound, and emotions into the world. In my
paintings I use color to create shapes from freehand lines left behind
in a dance to picture life and thought as energy, a point in our
universe to be discovered and explored.
Our combined ideas make an infinite universe. To connect
pinpoints in this universe, I use the time-space travel devices.
I see these ships as a metaphor for the mind. In thought we go
back in time as we relive and recreate our past actions. Going
forward in time, we decide what we will do the next time and how we
will direct our lives. Understanding the thoughts of others,
despite differences, is equal to traveling light-years to another
planet. When our imagination/ spaceships make it to that other
planet the triumph of comprehension generates a euphoric awareness and
mental expansion. The armed conflict and conquest we have been
forced to normalize as a part of our culture is obsolete and absurd in
the face of this elated coupling.
