SELF ANALYSIS OF GREED-2017 20 X 30 Inches
The Rasta-Man and His Resources -2016 27 X 36 inches
With the change in racial identity the early 30s Pan-African movement, we see that there was a rise in the black man’s return to his true identity, and the acceptance of himself for who he is and not what was created for him. He rejects the false food that he has been fed over the centuries and searches for a new identity; a recreation of EGO. The piece is a colorful and corporeal rasta-man who sits and observes the few personal items that belong to him. Although the rastaman has little to call his own, he is pleased that he lives a life of peaceful simplicity, without the onus of material wealth (of the modern world) weighing down his conscious. Living as a person who’s spiritually wealthy, he has found the true happiness of his life. The Atman is reclaimed.
RASTA-MAN IN DREAM-2016 32 X 38 Inches
F*ck You No Atman -2017 28 X 36 Inches
This piece is an homage to the people who march and shout in the streets, calling an end to the violence perpetuated on African Americans by cultural confusion and police practices. Due to the loss of identity and confusion in minority communities false egos are created on both sides of the racial/economic divide. Daring to cross police lines in civil disobedience, minority hands are raised in the air, stained by the blood of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and many other victims of such violence. As long as we stand idly by, and do nothing to regain the community’s sense of self this carnage may continue; their blood is on our hands. So we must march, we must fight for what’s right, and we must make America a safer place for all people.
Cyborg Matrix Explosion- 2017 28 X 36 Inches
Programmed Computer slave 27 X 36 Inches
As an extension of us bending to technology in this new computer driven world within the matrix, We have given our very mind and soul to feed the computer and its connection to the internet. It is the constant draining of our power by this artificial world that leads us lost and devoid of self-knowledge. Here is another example of how we have sold our very being and created another projected Ego, which we then claim as a sentient being.
MAN’S EGO NURTURING THE EARTH- 2017 26 X 39 Inches
In this piece, we visit man at his founding, the original Adam. This Adam is not the white-washed version found in the Bible, but the initial human being originally found in the deep Saharan jungles of Africa, as shown on the center globe. But as the human being evolved, found his identity, and developed his ego, his self-absorption led man to forget the fragile home which ensured his survival, constructing lofty towers of garbage and human refuse on top of land that once gave him his food. And thus, Man’s ego nourished the Earth, leaving it to suffocate on its own creation.
RastaMan’s Warning-2017 36 X 46 Inches
The Rasta-man wags his finger at “The Man”, in an attempt to warn him of the dangerous effects man’s ego can create if it is not controlled. He warns the human race of the environment they’re destroying with beliefs in coal and carbon emissions. He warns man of the violence he causes around the world because he cannot let go of his blinding pride. He warns all human beings to take their life today in gratitude, knowing that the ego can make them forget how short life can me. The Rasta-man warns us, but do we listen?
Angel of the Matrix- 2017 53 X 72 Inches
This piece explores the travels of the ego throughout the many realms of the space and time continuum. In astral projection, the soul leaves the body, expanding its metaphysical limbs to levels of higher consciousness. Reaching a greater dimension, this consciousness realizes its greater connection to the overarching universal reality, depicted here as undulating arteries connected to cells. Each cell is the consciousness of an individual soul. These elements mimicking the body show the reflection of our own reality projected onto the screen of true reality itself, as the ego expands onto the true plane of consciousness. It is the release of our constructed ego that allows us freedom to discover our true being.
Identity Network and Meditation dream- 2017 38 X 50 INCHES
Fully in the realm of meditation, the person has lost his being and his ego, and has given himself completely to the world of full consciousness and actual reality. Deep in the meditative state, his body loses its physicality, and has melded with the rest of the world, showing the true state of being one with the universe. In the distance, he sees an all seeing eye, like a deep center of the conscious state, and he reaches towards it, seeing it transform before him from an eye to an atom, a symbol of his reaching the basic core of matter itself and the composition of everything. From his meditation, he discovers he has become one with matter, and matter has become one with him. We all realize that the Ego we search for is only a part of a greater consciousness; we are one with everything.
