The powerful influence, blind we search the pathways ever present set out before us. Elusive realms, memories lost, love found….the invitation into the spell, into that which broke us, that which determined the essence of our walk

Sarcophagus stands tall offering protection and might, embracing the eternality of spirit as it journeys on through life.  This piece represents a turning point in my life.  The slab was resurrected from a fire which destroyed my work premises in 1996. The art is like a sacred totem to me, indicative of a spiritual rebirth of sorts, achieved only by a sense of a rigid part to myself having to die, a cleansing through the fire, a shift of consciousness.
