This series, Illumination, tracks the continued progress on my path toward that goal. Enlightenment is, at its essence, the presence of light. It is a state of mind.
The paintings in this series express the dawning of that state of awareness or consciousness within the mind. They track the progress of the light that pushes out conditioning, ego attachments, thoughts and the sense of the self as mortal and finite. These paintings, like all of my work, track the movement from unconscious to conscious awareness.
The Illumination Series explores the traditional topic of light but from a purely spiritual perspective. These paintings are the spiritual made material. They reference the horizon as the point of departure for the enlightened mind as the sun breaks through the darkness between earth and the sky.
Once the light enters the mind and imagination, it enters and consumes the body.
New work from my Illumination Series.
I'm living with this painting right now and it's magnificent. Like living with a crack in the universe where the light enters.
