The motion of the Wind Swirls within my mind Forgotten selves dip in and out Emitting coded comprehensions Too vast to comprehend Affecting every detail of myself As I sit amidst the Motion of my chair Trying to grasp the Wind
Origins, begun in 1981, is a continuing installation involving large-scale paintings, poetry, and sculpture expressing three main ideas: We Are All One, There Is No Death, We Are Not Alone. The body of work itself is a gestalt. Each piece has the integrity to stand alone; however, together the poetry and the visual art speak in a way that contain far more meaning than the sum of their separate parts. The images and poetry are multi-dimensional, operating on many levels—from the far reaches of the abstract beyond dream reality to the representational symbolism of physical reality—integrating many visual levels.
