The cycle of the anti-hero's journey can be seen in my drawings. Archetypes and allegories are presented to unlock the layered meanings behind the drawings. While it looks highly representational, the unreal and imagined are also woven into the reality of the drawing. When creating I fall into a state of rapture becoming mesmerized by the lights, shadows, reflexes and the infinite subtleties of the evolving light. I become obsessed attempting to recreate what lies before me. This intense focus and concentration pushes me into a state of flow. I disappear and become what I am drawing. Art also gives something me to hold on to. It strengthens my memories against an ever receding past. When I draw or paint something it becomes engraved into my brain while studying every millimeter of it. Lines coalesce into a muddled glimpse of my mind where there was once just a void of blank nothingness.
