Stargate: Process - Finding the center point and one step in setting the intention of the work.
My Stargate series is a guiding tool for metaphysical awakening and a modality for healing. With parallels to how traditional mandalas are made, each Stargate is set with an intention, has a center point that expands outward, and is within a framework, suggesting the parameters of the physical world we live in. In addition, each work is titled, Superstring, after the theory in physics that demonstrates the unification of all matter and forces. And they are numbered to mark a moment in time.
Through my practice of Kundalini yoga, I have extensive knowledge of energy systems and chakras and I apply that knowledge to my artwork. I also practice advanced Reiki and transmit each piece with healing energy. As my awareness expands through the process of creating these works, I am able to develop them further on a metaphysical level and offer that expansion of awareness to the viewer.
I’ve developed a multi-faceted formula to amplify the energy of each artwork, which includes crushed quartz crystals in the underpainting and a meditative process of layering paint and fabric, among other esoteric elements. The materials transcend into a viewing experience and function as an energy vortex. When looking at the work the audience receives healing energy, if they choose to do so.
My Stargate series can be activated further when the viewer sets their own intentions for the work and meditates with it. Each artwork carries an original energetic imprint, which will always be with the piece, and as people subjectively interact with it, the work becomes imbued with its own energetic history. Energy follows thought and these works carry a consciousness.
It is my intention is to offer the viewers of my artwork the opportunity to ring like a bell of awareness, self-empowerment and clarity.
