I have returned from a digital haitus. I needed to take a little time to unplugg and decompress. It was a much needed break and though I was reluctant to log into all the cyber interfaces, I acknowledge it is necessary for me at this time in my life as an artists. I use these tools to scatter images of things that I make to as many people as I can. I've been delving deep into the teachings of many experts of hidden knowledge and symbols. These lessons have permiated not only my person but my art. I have been formulating ideas and cultivating concepts that are coming to fruition and will be on display at Catalyst Gallery for the month of October 2015 in Beacon, NY. I am also committed to making quality tattoos that preferably have a purpose and communicate a message. I am hoping 2015 will bring me some great opportunies to paint temples. Bring them to me, I am beyond ready.
The picture below was recently finished, the Bodhisattva Vajrapani. The reference was taken for an ancient silk painting circa 850-900 AD. This painting was recently discovered in a cave in Western China. Amazing to think artwork could survive in a cave for over a thousand years.
