The simultaneous impact of a symbol on different levels of awareness, has always secured my attention in visual art, performance art, literature, or life in general. A via regia of sorts, as Freud would put it, the symbol allows entry to those subdued, if not forgotten forces that pull our strings.

The purpose of my art is to reconnect, discover, and/or realize the schisms in us all, so that we may change the course a little to the right, and see what happens....

VICIOUS CYCLE


Symbolizes how viciousness (anger, aggression) is immediately harmful to the perpetrator (no matter who started first), be it through adversarial relations, or internal mayhem (most likely both). The title is a word play on 'vicious cycle', as in the repetition of a harmful cycle, but also as in the projected meanness of suppressed pain.






 STATE OF BEING


The missile entering the back symbolizes past attacks, from parents, and/or other care givers, causing aggression in turn (internal and external), symbolized by the missile being thrown, while figure is really wishing for peace (as revealed by left hand).
