your world beginning | a place to find inner peace

a place to find inner peace

My latest series entitled “Your World Beginning” searches for found beauty. A beauty, that when discovered, gives the inner soul a place for stillness and rejuvenation.

Things for me in recent months, had been pretty dark emotionally. Artistically I tried to work through my angst in a cathartic way via my previous series “Your World Disappearing”. I am now ready to accept the fate that was handed to me and move on. Years ago, in my process of finding a sustainable recovery, I discovered that physical immersion into landscapes of beauty, moments of solitude, and personal accountability through action would provide the first of four significant paths to peace. This new series is a visual reflection of the desire for discovery and the emancipating steps to take me there.

The mountains have always been a place where I could venture to and find a place of inner peace.

your world beginning | the beauty of untangled things

your world beginning

an emerging light
left over from a shadowed memory
your world disappearing ….
Ending
and now
your world beginning
with the beauty of untangled things

So it is time to move beyond “Your World Disappearing.” Time to discover the light that heals, that gives beauty and peace; a place to evolve, a future of untangled things … until the cycle repeats itself.

My latest post, from my new series entitled “Your World Beginning.” A series that will consist of video art and digital collage. An evolution of beauty emerging from the ambiguity of my previous series entitled “Your World Disappearing.”

experiment: from eternity to you and i | video art

*****************

Last night I completed another video in my “Experiment” series entitled: From Eternity To You and I. I am quite excited about the results. I used various visual and audio elements in the video, including video clips, production music, and sound effects. Along with my own original video clips. I recently found a great video stock company called Video Blocks that provides high quality HD formatted videos clips, soundtracks in all genres, effects, titles, plug-ins and sound effects. The most exciting elements of this piece in producing it, was the video editing and sound editing. I am still adjusting to learning the various tools for more precise sculpturing of elements e.g. sound layering. But all in all I can see the potential for increased creativity. My goal is to move more toward the abstract, both in sound and imagery. Keeping in pace with the themes of Surrealism, Futurism and Dadaism.

New Landscapes: Winter – Departure Songs And Shattered Recordings

New Landscapes: Winter - Departure Songs And Shattered Recordings

Oh if it’s more than I should
It’s more than I ever could
If my heart needed you to stay
At the end of the day
Would you go

Oh my life’s story is so thin
Underneath this torn skin
Lost in the hardness
Of this bitter chill
– a Winter
With nothing more to fill

Oh it’s more than I ever should
– if only
I could
