Artist Statement:

The other world seems to be so near, when we consider the depth and expanse of the cosmos. We feel compelled to reach out, connect to something greater than ourselves. It is effortless, and almost palpable. To feel, in these moments, a mysterious power pervading everything - we feel it, but do not see it. It transcends the senses. Our human spirit is awakened and we are diminished. Truth abides here.
