Continuity and the Void

2017, 8 x 8 inches, Collage on Paper

“Therefore, in the void there are no forms and no feelings, conceptions, impulses and no consciousness: there is no form, sound, smell, taste, touch or idea; no eye elements, until we come to no elements of consciousness. Also, there is no truth of suffering, of the cause of suffering. Because there is no obstruction he has no fear, and he passes far beyond all confused imagination and reaches Ultimate Nirvana.”
The Heart Sutra (The Prajnaparamita-Hrdaya Sutra)

"These collages are a record of a very tortuous, lonely, and funny journey through the land of recovery in 2017 where I was in a constant state of mixed feelings about life: between Bob Marley’s “Life is good” and Aldous Huxley “Maybe this world is another planet's hell.” It is often at the most unexpected times that we turn to art to soul-search, to make a higher connection and commune with something intangibly bigger than ourselves. Sometimes this may involve disturbing expressions of darkness as well as light." Carol Santos
