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 longing into epic imagery, there are inherent celebrations and constructed 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.
