THE LIGHT CAME IN

AN EXPLORATION IN INTUITIVE EMBODIED CREATIVITY

THE LIGHT CAME IN

2022

ARTISTS STATEMENT

An exploration of what lies beneath the surface. Of what can be found when we tune in to our inner knowing. A discovery of what is inside of us when we choose to tune out the conscious mind and listen.

This work is based on what comes from dream states. Streams of consciousness flow full of metaphors with stories to tell. An unfolding of unconscious waters, ebbing and flowing, back and forth, revealing and concealing, pushing and pulling.

As you enter you’re lulled into a more meditative state, drawn inwards to connect with your own subconscious as the repeating hues slow your mind to a more contemplative pace The back-and-forth rhythm that follows is suggestive of being drawn back in and then being released by the waves. From one subconscious to another, something is communicated within the pages, a sense of story, unfolding.

The Sea Awaits

Shimmering,

Sparkling

I step deeper

and deeper

The cold waters,

gently washing over me,

I feel held

The water cools my skin,

supports me there

Weightlessly,

I surrender

With each breath,

I surrender

Surrender

to the time and place

Memories Fade

I am aware

That I am tied to this sea

And it’s current

Anchored here

Unsure

I wait

As with the moon

The sea shifts

In and out

Back and forth

It rocks me

Into a gentle sleep

lulled

Forever rhythmic

Hypnotic

Am I destined to be

Lulled for an eternity

Never expected to

Awake

From this state

I forget myself

Lost

In the motionless sea

It’s like

The stillness of

A dream

Surreal

Floating

Still

Calm

Stagnant

The land I knew

Lays arid and dry

I know I can’t go back there

All that survives

Is of man

And that which falls

In its shade

I wait for a time

when the shore

Is in sight

As I do

I slip beneath the water

I let it consume me

Wondering if there is a way

To exist

In the depths

And the darkness below

Something deep

within me is no longer

willing to surrender

I do not wish for

Barren lands

Or rescue boats

Or a sea that is calm and wide

I long for

Meandering streams

Dauntless rivers

With rapids

Flowing wild

I will the current

To come and move me

I am unbothered by where

I just longed to be moved

From this place

To somewhere new

A place where I can breathe

If I could create ripples

That could turn into waves

Waves that could

Carry me back

To gasping breaths

A place where

I no longer have to

Ebb and flow with

The tides

Perhaps

I could find my way

Back

To a place that is me

No longer

Waiting

I dream

And let me dreams carry me….

Back to the shore
