Artist Statement:

My practice is a series of experiments where I explore certain methods- usually Occult or Spiritualistic in nature- to attain a greater understanding of myself and my place in the world. 

++++

 The past couple of years my work has focused on Hypnosis. I am interested in using Hypnosis to contact or gain access to a part of my unconscious and perhaps even the collective unconscious. 'Visions in the Dark' was my previous show where I made drawings in a hypnotic state. My Hypnotist gave me a recording to listen to and I made all of the drawings in a temporary studio. I was Hypnotized in that studio the day of my show and made drawings on the floor as well.
