The reality that everything emerges from and returns to one.
The term Unus Mundus most literally translates to “one world” in Latin. Psychologist Carl Jung expanded upon the original meaning to describe the idea of a collective unconscious and the emergence of a new reality from human cognizance itself, emphasizing the organic interconnectedness of all parts and particles of the universe. Unus Mundus lays the scaffolding for a reality in which our external and internal realms are one in the same, a dreamscape where matter and soul are one. Constructing a world where the observer is directly connected to the observed, now a well-known phenomenon in particle physic deemed, the observer effect. Yung’s Unus Mundus goes beyond space and time and includes the idea of transcendent unity. The creator and the creation are linked at the same energy source. This parallels the same proposals found by physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, who independently proposed holographic models of reality.
I generally start a piece by attempting to express an idea too complex for words alone. Symbols in my paintings can be seen as more than one form depending on how you view the picture as a whole. The inspiration and thoughts behind my work evolves along the paintings. The process is a cyclical collaboration between thought and action.
I make a lot of things and although they’re all related to me as the maker, there are distinct lines of art going on around here. My 2020 mission is to clarify what belongs where and to better help all of you understand the pursuits of madness.

Paintings For The People is a long term art adoption program. The mission of this program is to share art with my community. Paintings For The People will focus on placing Unus Mundus Art in meaningful locations. The distribution process is intended to create long term homes for art in places that may otherwise not be able to afford to do so.
As much as I appreciate opportunities to show my work, the gallery is not my ultimate goal. I want my paintings to be used, seen and accessible to all.
I believe that art can deeply transform the vitality and energy of our spaces. Art can awaken our senses and inspire change. Art reminds us of our own power and awakens us to the present state. Art challenges us to see past perceptual limits and to dream of a better tomorrow. Art is a language of unity. Art is the friend who can help heal the human soul.
