Parallel Universes of Punk

The Single Eye. My manifesto for today.

To a huge degree,my lifetime painting project, “If Thine Eye Be Single” series was generated by an interest in gnosticism. This has not only has been a lifetime preoccupation for me, but obviously, mysticism is one of the basic themes in the realm of all artistic expression. This project has been ongoing for twenty-seven years now, and at first my motivation was to channel my "subconscious" but now I call it "non-physical realms" which is pretty much the same thing. As I began to understand consciousness, I have realized that ALL thoughts, beliefs and vibrations are available. My steering-wheel through infinite parallel universes are my emotions. The way thoughts feel, emotionally is my (and your) internal guidance system. As a consciousness aligns with love/light by "good feeling thoughts" the internal vision becomes non-dual. The eye becomes "single." The single-eye is my obsession. You will always find the motif of the "single eye" in my paintings and doodles. "If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”- Matthew 6:22
