Antarctica haunts my dreams.  My photomontages are dreams come true and Antarctica has become a part of every series – Reflection, Resonance, Revelation and all of the others.   Dreams show us things we need to understand in another way or on another level. Dreams help us maintain a healthy psychic balance between the conscious and the unconscious. When we dream we make ourselves whole again.   How do I understand a dream?   First, I turn to readings in psychology. There it is. A language for the soul. Association, projection, transference, deflection, repression, sublimation, incubation, gestation, dependence, codependence, individuation, integration … and they’re not just...

Process

  How artist’s get there is just as important as where they arrive. This is the creative process rather than the creative product.   People have always been unusually curious about how I make my work. In part, this is because I work with new technologies and the many creative possibilities they open. And in part, this is because I work with many media simultaneously; photography, drawing, sculpture, writing, music. Why do I do so many things? Curiosity. And, each medium brings something new to light. When I use different tools I experience the world and myself differently. I started drawing before I could talk – and I’ve never stopped. It was my primary medium until digital photography enabled me to render images in my...

Revelation

    . Revelation   Get the book here. Explore the series here. . . Often, when I am in nature, I feel that I am in the presence of a spirit. For millennia, the spiritual traditions of the world have developed a highly creative vocabulary for these earth energies; Hindu devas, Shinto kami, Greek nymphs, Celtic fairies, African yawahoos, Egyptian afrites, Iroquois orendas, and the list goes on and on and on. These explorations are an essential aspect of human nature. This soulful approach to life reminds us that we too are spiritual as well as material beings. . The images in my series Revelation remind me, and many others, of the figures, masks, and paintings found within the world’s sacred traditions. Throughout human history, including in the western psychological...

Constellation

We are made of star stuff.” He reminds us that the stars, the earth, and our bodies share the same basic building blocks. They come from and return to the same places and return to the same places. So when we gaze at the heavens we see where we came from and what we were, where we are going and what we will be. When we gaze at the land we see where and what we are now. In contemplating both we embrace an expanded view of our place in the universe and ourselves.   Things are usually much richer and more complicated than they...

Sublime Moments

  I’ve been extremely fortunate to travel this wonderful world and see so many inspiring things. There have been many magic moments along the way. These are unforgettable moments that change the way I think and feel about our world as I become aware of possibilities I hadn’t dreamed of – and now they’re in my dreams constantly. Here are a few of the highlights.   In 2013, I travelled to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. Ringed by clouds, the spring rains had covered parts of it in a thin sheet of water that when the winds died down became a glassy mirror of perfect reflections, as far as the eye could see. Walking on it was disorienting;...
