The third insight
My work questions the ways in which these contrasting ideas are fundamentally connected. Does modern technology hinder or encourage our capacity for spiritual enlightenment? Where does the natural world end and the material world begin? What are the basic individual truths that connect every culture, philosophy, and religion of the world? My artwork does not strive to reveal an ultimate truth; rather, it questions whether an ultimate truth can really exist in today’s world.
Notable influences on my work include Wassily Kandinsky, whose ideas on the transcendental capacity of art resonate deeply with me, and Gerhard Richter, whose cloud paintings launched my interest in the gap between figuration and abstraction.
