This series of paintings, From Darkness Came Light, explores mankind's relationship towards nature and society, the preordinance of human existence versus free will, and the knowledge of wisdom within man. The balance of these modes of being are discussed through the perspective of a distilled human and individual experience outside of gender, politics, and other temporal characteristics. Experiencing
the movement in these abstractions catalyzes an awakening of the human spirit that celebrates the sanctity and potential of the individual.
The viewer’s mind is released from perspectives that often narrow our vision towards goals and desires. These abstract images allow one to experience a state of hyper-consciousness and create space in the
busyness of modern living to weigh virtues and faults. The action of viewing the paintings stretches a hole within daily routines that allow magic or monsters born from unresolved issues to crawl through.
This series intends to provide a deeply personal and unique experience while simultaneously building a feeling of inclusivity to the human race.
