Artist Statement

Evolve Above

Over the last 14 years, my artwork has visually and symbolically employed the eight levels of consciousness that have been discovered, and put forth, by the Developmental Psychologists from the 20th and 21st century. I learned about these psychologists from Ken Wilber.  If you view the paintings that I have created, you will see that they evolve, in terms of color ideology: From beige (low end psyche) to turquoise (higher end psyche). All six of the other psychological color elements represented here fall between the lower and upper levels of consciousness.

There are higher levels of consciousness other than those used in my paintings, such as the “Blue-Violet”, and they exceed above and beyond the level of “Turquoise Intuition”, which I often use to show a high level of consciousness. The blue violet, I use more sparingly.

Another aspect of my artwork deals with “Ego”, which is how mind and body connect.  The lower portion of the ego (body) deals with our inner animal self and the outer universe. The upper mind deals with the inner universe, the internal level of consciousness.
