The Seed of JOY

Introduction to Series- There are currently 77 finished pieces.m-vara _Sunflower seeds_

I have chosen the sunflower seed which is nature’s simple emblem. I use it here to explore Joy as a gardener searching purity, process, nourishment and light. The sunflower seed elicits a metamorphosis of hidden patterns and provides exposure to my process of thought. Benevolence- a well-meaning- and once private dialog, is drawn into form, through color and the actual motion of mark making, in the process of dragging, scratching, smearing. Literal context lay bare without the shell in concordance to this time existence. Marking events, creating sensitive patterns, symbolically resembling and representing my manner of life, showing small details of occasions for dimension of meaning set forth as a visual language towards opportunities in hope and happiness for the world; that I share and care for.

Altered photographs,

Altered states of process and reality’s.

I see myself as the gardener of images and objects- imparting Joy on my surroundings with true intention. Making and meditation maintain my garden and hopefully touches your soil leaving marks of a joy and smile.
