"These works explore the use of rhythm in abstraction as a method of creating and discovering ceremony. I use spatial rhythms to create the action of ceremony. If art is ceremony, then rhythm is art’s sacrament.

 

I look to the experience of the everyday natural world to uncover sacred place and to learn ceremony. Ceremony creates the discovery of an other beyond the self. In this way, ceremony aids us to listen, feel, and play with the skill of awareness. These images attempt communion with an other as opposed to communication for the self."
