72 Names Project:
These collage plates are the first six in a larger body of work of 72 pieces currently in progress. this project originally began in the artists Provincetown, Cape Cod studio. these original six pieces were created there. Each individual piece takes inspiration and formal direction from a specific idea of divine consciousness and greater understanding. Found in the ancient wisdom of the Zohar (the original text of kabbalah), the "72 Names of God " name and give meaning to the 72 possible manifestations of divine energy in our physical life experience. Each name is represented by three Aramaic characters. each of these symbols, likes wires in a cable when combined together conduct energy. These "Names" are the tools for connecting with that energy. Focusing visually on these symbols when combined together, with directed consciousness can reveal moments of cosmic opportunity and manifest possibilities for quantum change.
The actual creative process and format for these works are specific to each piece. The artist literally sets himself into a divine consciousness of the specific " Name" while conceiving and creating each piece. The result is that of an authentic channeling of creative inspiration from idea, thought, and feeling into process and form. The pieces are rich with layering of personal and global reference while translating directly to the viewer.
