the artist who paints god's mistake

 With my installations I transform the  space of sentient consciousness.

My installations challenge viewers to re-visit  their consciousness as time

perceived as moving  pieces & thoughts rather than as a person or an identity.

In my art I express friction with quantitative perceptions of sentient consciousness to act as a visual metaphor of the battle that mortal beings face in recognizing value associated with our limited lifetimes to utilize and appreciate the power of our infinite mind. 

I address this individualistic limitation by including "the witness" as part of my art, but set up installations that never allow the witness to see the entire installation all at once.  The witness must participate with my art in order to see it; much like we must participate with life in order to grasp what it is and its value is for us.  Like consciousness that is used differently by everyone, but universally inherited at birth, everyone who views my work will see something different but also be able to share some common experiences, while the work itself remains the same universal resource.

My hope is to share that presence of
"the witness" as reassurance that our innocence (as well as our consciousness) as sentient beings is also moving time and cannot be ruined.  My artistic suggestion is that not only is our innocence unable to be imprisoned or ruined because of its characteristic as incomplete, but simultaneously we should not prejudice our connection to this moving innocence with false conclusions or premature resolutions of what innocence is. As an artist I ask through my work: "What is true innocence other than entitlement to witness life? What is true innocence other than each individual having their own relationship with innocence? What is true innocence if the witness is not allowed to understand negative?  What is true innocence if negative is  condemned as unworthy of being seen?  How  can we transcend systemic racist morality and have full justice if we cannot forgive  our God, our sentient power and not allow error to exist there?
