Statement

As an artist and creativity coach, delving into the unconscious regions of the mind using active imagination techniques has been of vital importance. As such, unconscious elements of the psyche and their symbolic representations have long been the subject of my works. What I think of as a juxtaposition of light and dark forces at work come out to play when I engage myself fully in creative endeavors and this brings about a world composed of inner polarities, it is in this realm that close attention is paid to the dark side. As many people often transfer their own darkness onto others, perceptions of evils tend to be viewed as external in nature. However, each person carries his or her own source of darkness, the shadow. Discovering and harnessing the energy of the shadow in a constructive manner is the central theme found in the work I create. These images are derived from personal experience in which expressive means were utilized to engage with emotions evoked by contact with the shadow. As new perceptions develop, patterns in my own life that were once hidden emerge and shed insights into sense of Self and become abstract representations of a personal dialogue with archetypal entities from the collective unconscious.

 
Lintonian

A cabinet of curiosities from the not so distant future.

Exposure to such everyday occurrences such as depleted ozone layers, toxic waste, deforestation, radon infiltration, desertification, pesticide runoff, radioactive residues, radiation warnings, electromagnetic radiation, radiation levels, nuclear power, cell phone radiation, biometric disruption, nuclear weapons proliferation, over fishing, global warming, genetic contamination, DNA malfunction, artificial hormones, unilateral destruction, magnetic disruption, and other such unnatural maladies that have been introduced to a planet that was untouched by human pollution until the fist wafts of the industrial revolution changed forever the wings of a simple moth two hundred years ago.

In a time when advances in technology greatly outpace the rate in which it can be understood we are left to ponder one of the last great mysteries of all time “What will the future hold“?
