My Reason for Making Art

Looking back is a relative thing, because the context of the current moment skews the truth. Why am I making artwork based on “hidden truths” found in western esoteric philosophy?

Working Through Sketches

I’ve been keeping a sketchbook to record the visual ideas that come to mind while reading Lectures on Ancient Philosophy. These sketches predominantly are based on the ideas from Manly P.
