Cultivation of Relapse and Unknowns

This post is an update on what I’ve been working on. Aside from mapping out ideas through a sketchbook, I’ve been pulling my sources of archived images and combining them with new images in an effort to composite more final pieces. I’ve learned a lot with my readings, but translating these ideas in image form

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? This is a question I’ve been asking myself for awhile now. The short answer is that my definition of “being an artist” between high school and

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. Halls writings. Below are sketches 1-12 with explanations and plan for what the final image(s) will look like. Some of these are vector based for simplicity,

Planets and their Variation

View complete series of focus-stacked Little Planets. After taking some time off from all the reading I’ve been doing I’ve begun (slowly) re-approaching my underlying thesis of translating philosophical principles into visual language. I’m starting with more macro photography, for now, as I find the break of normality it offers refreshing. I became invested in the

Our Space

I’ve decided to begin my exploration of ancient philosophical ideas and the writings of Manly P. Hall through the filter of duality. From the metaphysical viewpoint, duality refers to the physical separateness of related yet opposite phenomena or modes of being. Our entire world exists in these polarities and it seems this is a good place to

The Flame

View additional version of these images in my series The Flame. There have been a number of good things happening I feel with this new line of work, such as having a sense of purpose. With this feeling, however, comes the burden of knowing how unable I am to fully process or understand the very thing
