Portals, Elements, Emanations

 

"You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are." Eckhart Tolle

 

The things I see come from a sense of abundance and gratitude.

My mission with the work comprising Portals, Elements, Emanations is to present compelling photographs that foster a journey of contemplation about the importance of looking beyond the familiar.

This work began with using my camera to blend nature's infinite colors and uniquely juxtaposed elements and textures in an impressionistic and expressionistic manner. What has evolved is my discovery of the underlying inner essence of the one eternal source found in all things.

These photographs challenge our visual sense of the familiar.  By employing fluid, sweeping camera strokes, I capture the dissolution of nature's familiar forms revealing not only the energy of the source hidden within the subject, but also a sense of deep stillness and peace. The familiar becomes a synthesis of internal and external realities.
