Artists Statement: Breakthrough
In breakthrough, one sees the element of the heart. Learning to live from the heart, enables humanity to evolve. Even though it gets broken, it heals & transcends circumstance, enabling flexibility & growth. The Hybrid, combination of animal and human, is the pathway to our natural animal instinct. Animals are egoless & in touch with the natural rhythm of life, whether good or bad, it’s always accepted. The Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. It appears to be able to change direction swiftly, gliding through the air with no apparent effort. A symbol of metamorphosis & transformation, it inspires the changes needed to reach one’s full potential.
Artists Statement: Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change
You are the perfect, yet expanding Being, in a perfect, yet expanding world. Your expansion is a given, the expansion of your time-space reality is a given, and the expansion of the universe around you, is a given. This piece was inspired by the Native American saying, Chui ta ka ma, the place of choiceless awareness, the place where it is clear which choice is a choice for life, where we can make no other. It is so much more satisfying for you to consciously and deliberately participate in your own expansion. How freeing, to realize you are your own puppet master, guiding the directions of your own strings, purposefully and intentionally participating in your own unique expansion.
