Down the Rabbit Hole

This image was featured at the Galacorina art event Nueva Vida in Tampa, FL, November 2005.This image is of two identical mirros placed across from each other and infinitely reflecting one another. The reflections form a space that seems physical as if you could step right into the mirror and walk through it as if it is a hallway. I am very intruiged by the idea of representing a mirror as a physical space and have produced a number of works that explore the mirror as a visual, conceptual, and physical space. This is part of that series. The title 'Down The Rabbit Hole,' of course elludes to the physical space behind the mirror as Lewis Carroll portrayed it in 'Through The Looking Glass.' I have purposely chosen this name as it elludes a bit more vaguely by referring to Alice's earlier adventures in Wonderland and hopefully reminding the viewer that it is our previous experiences in strange worlds which inform us and affect our latest journeys into new ones. (The actual location is a castle in La Roche, France.)I am offering this as an extremely LIMITED EDITION series of 11x14 Archival Prints on 1/4 black mount board. For availability in other print sizes please inquire. This image is only available as a very LIMITED EDITION print. I'm keeping it an open edition for now and will only print as orders come in, but I will be closing out the edition after a few orders.

Please check back often there is much more to come! Thanks!For me, art is an investigation of the spiritual, of the balance between the physical and ephemeral, a striving to create a visual dialogue, a means of personal growth, a development of ideas and ideals. Art is a mirror of our world through which we gain deeper knowledge. Among my influences I must count not only artists but also theologians, scientists, and writers who have imparted seeds which blossom into new incarnations in my art. As Albert Einstein states, 'Science without religion is lame religion without science is blind.' I feel as well that all disciplines are enriched by relations to each other. In my art I explore scientific, philosophical, and spiritual theories and their connections. As Minor White did, I strive to capture an image which will elicit an emotion in the viewer or spark an epiphany which need not exactly replicate my own thought process or feeling in the creation. As long as my audience receives something positive from my work I have succeeded. Currently I am intrigued by ideas of the nature of our makeup, of what is our essence, how our physical and mental selves connect and how scientists and theologians have proposed these things, especially in their connection to art. By creating art which explores these and other ideas, I hope to open a dialogue which excludes no one, but encourages people to form a pragmatic and metaphysically enriched view accepting of others.
