“I know things older than Freud, older than gender” are the words of Gloria Anzaldua in Borderlands. They ring not only backwards to a time before the suffocating imposition of the colonial scientific-industrial complex, but these words also ring deep into the body, calling out our DNA, reminding us of an embodied knowledge that predates language, logic and culture. She is suggesting a gnosis, an awareness of our surrounding cosmic fluid. Conversely, she suggests our propensity to forget as pervading cultural forces attempt to deny us our universality in favor of an exclusive commitment to nationality or religion. My own art, like Anzaldua’s, is a series of gestures that subvert the constraining aspects of our culturescape which impose by force left-brain concepts of ego and rationality, that encourage us to think of ourselves as discrete entities designed for a man-made existence. My art process speaks to a consciousness unconstrained by the limitations of ego, language and logic. My tools are my body, scavenged materials of organic and inorganic varieties and intuitive practices learned via research and personal observation including the field of contemporary parapsychology, Jungian active imagination, Buddhist meditation and Yoruba divination.
