Artifacts of Alchemy The loss of my brother Stuart in 2001, inspired the creation of mystically based images, nuanced in remembrance. He was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder. The details presented, are an exploration of the alchemy inherent in the larger heirloom of life: tiny, multi-layered, synaptic combustions, expressing the vast spaces and connectivity between mania and calm. The multi-dimensional veins are ever evolving, consequential, perpetual in nature and elaborately beautiful. By transforming my longing for his presence into epic imagery, I am able to celebrate and construct visions of energy in all of life’s elements: earth, water, air and fire. These elixirs of life conspire to create and liberate. Life in flow. Life in flux.
