My Vision of Peace
In general my work deals with the complexities of the human experience, and how we are informed by both our memory, and our present moment and surroundings. I believe peace arises out of an understanding that each person's experiences are as valid as our own. My vision of peace is one that celebrates the human mind, it's creativity and it's achievements. I particularly believe that our moments of pure childlike creativity can be our most peaceful, because we completely surrender and allow ourselves to be held by these moments. 'Hold' combines imagery that relates to the discovery of a world akin to a child's backyard exploration, with the very real and dangerous exploration and discovery of the first explorers. The map is one of the earliest drawn maps of the explorers, from a time when they believed the world was flat. I believe that all of our experiences are interconnected no matter how separate they seem, and appreciating the validity of others' experiences can create great peace.

I really like the way your imagery weaves it's way in and out and across your canvas to form a rich tapestry of time and humanity. Powerful, yet subtle at the same time.

I like the way you've balanced hues and tones in this composition. At first glance the cool luminous blues beyond the warm earth tones in the foreground gave me the sense of two worlds. After looking awhile longer I noticed the shape of the continents which made me think of our political boundaries and cultural differences, which can be a burden or a boon depending on how we choose to react to each other.
