Prospective Form is about the wisdom of form, and how it relates to individuality and karma. I explore this reality though the wisdom of my senses, which I consecrate through my process of conceiving art. The process of this research has manifested in various forms of portraiture that strive to unite the universal with the self.
On the one hand, Prospective Form is a retrospective, in that it includes work from the past many years. On the other hand, it is a prospective, in that the karmic trajectory of my artistic mission can be witnessed as a living impulse in each artwork.
My intuition for this exhibition, is that it may invite human beings to be interested in the form of their sense organs as well as the wisdom of their senses. My hope for this exhibition is that it reveals, in rudimentary form, how the Divine Being of Wisdom is the destined self-conscious body of the human being who is reborn by Love. In this light, I wish for Prospective Form to inspire its viewers to intuit the sacredness of their individuality and karma.
As a recently turned twenty-eight year old human being, I consider Prospective Form to be a karmic document expressing my life, my purpose, and my striving to reveal the spiritual mission of art.
