Artist’s Statement

We do not think ourselves into new ways of living. We live ourselves into new ways of thinking. In other words, our journeys around and through our realities, or “circumferences,” lead us to the core reality, where we meet both our truest self and our truest God
Richard Rohr

From Here to There is informed by ideas regarding the transitional stages between light and dark, creation and decay, arrival and departure, life and death.
