Noumenon (n.): an object or event outside the detection of the senses; itself inaccessible to experience, to which a phenomenon is referred for the basis of its sense content; a posited object or event that is known (if at all) without the use of the senses.
The intention of my work is to achieve resonance with viewers on a spiritual level and instigate thoughts and feelings of mystery and wonder, prompting perhaps to even contemplate the self, as individual, in relation the whole of our existent reality. I am at peace with paradox. The value for me is not always in finding solutions, but often experienced in the process of exploring possibilities and establishing merit in the pursuit of worthy goals.
I seek to engage my audience in a way that invites careful attention, emanates sincerity, and provokes reflection.
