Artist Statement

“None of us can escape the habit of projecting thoughts and concepts over reality itself—onto what Buddhists would call “pure perception”. But if we can access awareness of our inner, deeply ingrained conceptual biases, we can open new windows onto our mind.  By contrast, when mind is immersed in uncontrolled emotions and mistaken, often self-preserving beliefs, we’re unable to see clearly: it is as though we are trying to peer through a dirty window. This contemplative approach to my work involves an attempt to visually describe these obscuring veils from a more spacious point of view, drawing upon both my personal experience and my experience of meditation practice. My work is intended to be intimate and accessible to the viewer. As is described in many Buddhist texts, ‘Buddha (that is, direct awareness) is in the palm of your hand.’”
