To draw or paint classically well requires an altered state of consciousness in the most literal sense of the term. The day-to-day visual processing that allows us to safely cross the street and instantly read facial expressions edits, simplifies, and abstracts the overwhelming visual world into an efficient system of useful data. To draw or paint “realistically” the mind must be taught to take away the informational overlays and perceive more of what the eye actually sees and less of what the brain sorts and interprets. My work seeks to pick and choose from different stages in the brain's visual processing pathways, and act as a series of maps that invite the viewer to enter that altered state of consciousness. To alter their mental state until the brain is no longer tuned to be an efficient survival machine, but an encompassing experiential tool, openly and empathically engaged with the world around and the worlds within.”
