unraveling paradox


The works function as portals to another dimension; taking ME there.

I am empowered by making objects that stand freely in my home; functioning as doorways to the unknown where I find answers to questions about life – the verities of time, fate, creativity, flow, and beauty.

They bridge a gap socially too by providing a point of departure for conversations about what I call “the playful unseen”.

I feel clearly that such objects “make of the viewer a mystic”.  They become devices that feature the functionality of non-dual reality in duality; unraveling paradox.

After all, why do we choose to come here to experience duality?  I embrace humanity and every beingness by recognizing the elegant processes we share.  AND, today, I arrive here at “The Awakened Eye” with YOU.
