Encountered Souls, Artist Statement
In all of our travels we encounter souls, we hear of Old Souls, Lost Souls, Enchanted Souls and Searching Souls. All these are representative of something beyond us, which I feel a need to connect with.
If we take the time to look and listen we can find out what comprises the world we live in both materialistically but mostly spiritually. With my work I strive to capture something outside myself and thusly find out more about who I am and those around me.
My current work revolves around the found object and abstracted impressions. By collecting objects and images I feel that I am piecing together an understanding of all the overlapping slices of time and place. I Imagine scenarios and try to give identities to the ideas spawned by various writings conversations and instances that comprise my existence.
