Artist Bio

    There is an enigmatic and mystifying place that every person that's ever lived has visited.  We do so with an obscure regularity that we take for granted as conscious beings.  The realm of our dreams is one with which we are all familiar.  Where elucidation occurs as we are suddenly granted access to our innermost thoughts and where reality seems as distant from us as resolves to the things that eat at us from within.  These answers lay dormant in our subconscious, and these inherent truths are granted to us only though the effort of not overlooking this place we all frequent. "Parallels" is a visual, non linear timeline that explores the sensation of confusing dreams with reality and the altered reflection it shows us into ourselves. 

    Nature plays its vital role in this, as a messenger between humans and veracity from its magical and consummate place embedded in our souls.  Through the boxes in which society stores us away and labels accordingly, and onto the grey areas- that is where humanity dwells, in the wealth of things beyond our understanding.  There are indisputable truths in the reflections on a glassy body of water and harsh sun light through a leaf, veins exposed and vulnerable.  These are experiences or occurrences that escape the logic of empirical materialism and our subconsciouses have carried these truths down through generations, passing the symbols along to us, a parallel raelm of ethereal narrative. 

    When we confuse our dreams with actuality, there is a reason for it.  Like the spaces in between the silence, if something only takes place in our mind does that mean it's not reality? This series reflects my time spent in this place- in the parallel dreamworld.
