  • "Body is nothing more than emptiness, 
    emptiness is nothing more than body. 
    The body is exactly empty, 
    and emptiness is exactly body."
    --Heart Sutra
     
    An experiment  in  portraiture  using  a  combination  of  mediums,   ‘Drifter’ combines aerosol and acrylic with classic oil techniques to convey the openness and malleability of an androgynous human child. The horizontal stroke of movement across expanses of partially rendered human likeness creates an ethereal image, referring to the fact that no thing - including human existence - has ultimate substantiality, which in turn means that things are neither permanent nor totally independent of anything else. Much of my work explores concepts like these and either directly or indirectly addresses the idea of ultimate emptiness, or in other words, that everything is interconnected and in constant flux. A deep appreciation of this idea of emptiness saves us from the suffering caused by our attachments, and our resistance to change and loss.
