I have a fascination with rituals. Rituals create a sense of order in my existence.
Mystery is the essence of my being.
Autism brings its own beauty for I am not bound by constraints of time and order.
I inhabit a world of chaos, a world where the outcome is no more relevant than the beginning.
The most sacred of my rituals involve water. Immersing myself I return to primordial memories.
In the Tao, feng shui, elements of wind and water create the basis of all harmony.
Water has no bones and cannot be broken or contained ... always in movement.
My paintings are a record of a brief life when the water, paper, color and I engage in a ritualistic dance.
I do not seek to control the water.
I surrender to the water.
The paper comes to life.
Moving, pigments separating and blending.
No time to think for like the calligrapher I am not a writer of words.
The colors have their own language.
For a moment we are one entity where the outcome is random....beyond explanation.
When the ritual is finished the paper becomes a relic of the moment.
