featuring my most recent piece Bicameral Ether is a state of mind; an endeavor in introspection, an assessment of consciousness. Exploring sculptural self portraiture through abstraction, this immersive experience emphasizes the structures at the core of my studio practice. This space is a descent into the primordial brain; a visualization inspired by TheAllegory of the Cave. External structures protect us, and envelope our experiences; yet internal structures create the fiber of our relationship to the outer world. This liminal space represents the ether inside of my head, on the outside of my mind. Epoch transports you from the mundane everyday, through time and evolution, to the realm of the forms. Forging a connection between how our environments, internal and external, inform our state of mind. A defensive structure, and an inner life; processing the primal experience of being alive.
