I practice art as meditation. It is yoga. It is martial arts. It is mopping. It is a thought that springs to life, into words, into sounds, into images. Inspiring action. It connects our lives to the here and now. Art is truth telling.
I see the goal of the artist to seek deep connections between the light and the dark. Art is a shaman’s magic. Art is a potion that when properly prepared can propel the participant into higher dimensions of thought, love and feeling. When taken as prescribed it acts as a catalyst for the evolution of DNA pushing humanity towards progress. The end goal is to expand consciousness. Allowing us to find empathy for ourselves, others and the world we live in.
