Enter the Spiritual World of the Surreal....
The spiritual world is felt - but rarely seen. Surrealism seeks to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind, that frequently depicts the irrational juxtaposition of images. It is filled with symbolism and unconscious, almost dream-like meaning. Given God speaks to people frequently through imagery and dreams, my art seeks to create spiritual “dreamscapes” of fantastical and symbolic meaning as a means to visually express the divine encounter. Christian Surrealism expresses a spiritual world that isn’t quite what we observe, but rather is something we might feel or yearn for.
My hope is that this artwork does more than just make you think it’s interesting or pretty – I hope it touches a part of your soul. I hope it raises questions. I hope it makes you think more deeply about how God is at work not just in your life – but in the world.
