The comprised works portray a passage, which for me, are visual metaphors of the transcendent experience that lies beyond the ordinary range of perception. The imagery involved is inspired by geometric forms found in classical architecture, my love of line, and influences in art from the antiquity of both Greek and Roman cultures. The marriage(of the creative process) of alternative photography and painting, as well as the intuitive intelligence used, shapes the content of my work.
