The year of the pandemic gave plenty of time for contemplation. This polyptych represents my vision of 5 mindsets and their inner alchemy. Each of the 5 pieces represents a trait or attribute which, as humans, we often judge ourselves against. Upon reflection, I found it quite liberating to free my thoughts, disengage, and step outside the confines of the mind, reinforcing that by just being in the moment with higher self; open, aware, and accepting, judgments and opinions where left out, truly capturing actual essence and attributes.
Acts of repetition and pattern-making create the space to free my mind from chaos and judgments. In an almost ritualistic way, I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of thoughts represented by symbols in my life stemming from binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my personal iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is not just heart opening, intrinsic and cathartic but it visibly creates stability in my work.
*The vision for the frames is each piece floated between to plexyglass sheets and hung using chrome stand-off screws.
