My view of art as an evolutionary process was formed early in life and nurtured by my practice of taiji and qigong.

Transcendence isn’t about going to a better or higher state, it’s more about learning a deeper way to perceive what is already present.

To make works of art that go beyond theory or technique, I have to stay open to auspicious coincidences yet keep enough control to produce fortuitous results.


If I want to make art that evokes feelings like joy or grief I have to enter an unknown place and come out balanced between relaxed, intuitive observation and the discipline of conscious intent.
