Psychopompos are spirits from the non-visible world that have the ability to cross between the barrier that separates us from the other. As a mediator between the conscious and unconscious realms, the psychopomp is able to restore psychic order and bring forth a deeper level of consciousness and clarity. I believe in a Shamanistic and Alchemical art that can act in this way. The painting is an intermediate agent negotiating the liminal space between the everyday and the Archetypal. One may look into the painting, but the painting looks back; a strange mirror of hidden desire and the churning other that lurks behind the veil. The forms in my work are foreign and familiar, Universal and particular. Painting can be a type of magic if we give it enough space and a little silence.
