What if what we call the 'psychological', the 'spiritual', and the 'emotional', are all facets of the same experience; and that this experience is the phenomenon of a subtle dimension of 'Being-in-the-world', in the Heideggerian sense? That these experiences are in fact brief moments of awareness of something elusive that is constantly occurring? My work takes these questions as its premise. I study and explore this territory phenomenologically, through meditative techniques and altered states. The mark-making of painting and drawing become records of my attempts to map these elusive experiences, often manifesting in abstract and symbolic imagery that can be, in turn, experienced and contemplated.
