Description: In order to support writing Conscious / Eternal, I collected a wide range of images of the various spaces through which the characters passed. These works are an attempt to combine those spaces into a new space through the practice of drawing and painting. By introducing a geometry unique to the media, I have created a new territory that challenges the space captured in the images in hopes of escaping those spaces and finding a new liberated territory to inhabit. The result, hopefully, captures the wonder that inspires us to continue through difficult times and places.
