ARTIST: THE ST[D]ARK REALITY

Artist Statement

.

Almost ten years ago, I started binding objects w. strips of muslin. The objects were painted w. words which created symbols, sometimes first and sometimes after. I always created something I wanted to bring forth in life. A manifestation. The objects were somewhat enhanced while at the same time being disguised. They were always bound to contain the magick within – A sigil of sorts.

I realized, similarly, I had done this to myself. I’ve bound myself behind style, subculture, hair, and body modifications. Layers upon hidden layer. Distinct compartments w. no blurred lines.

The objects I was creating during conception were to break down these barriers, strip away the layers, and manifest myself in my truest form.

My images are not about whether the photo has soft edges or is photo perfect. They’re about conveying what I’m manifesting for myself. Next up – Conveying what my subjects are trying to manifest.

My initial images are of myself, but after a chat and a cup of tea, I hope to discover in others what I’m starting to discover for myself.
