strings, nails and black light | dimensions variable | 2012 | exhibited at Governors Island Art Fair, NY

I refer to these angular shapes as portals, which represent a metaphorical gateway into parallel universes and embody my psychic concerns relating to life and death.
Symbolically, water represents dream-states and the subconscious – that which is below the surface. This drawing is meant to give you the feeling of a plane that has both an above and a below, all the while contained. Moreover, the title of this piece relates to the constellation, as well as the age of Aquarius, that some scholars believe to describe enlightenment and expansion of consciousness.
