Art + The Unconscious Mind:  Pictures & Words | Astrology & Tarot | Hypnosis (2021)

Trancendental Meditation

A pair of pieces I created for David Lynch, Bob Roth, and the David Lynch Foundation for Transcendental Meditation. While I haven't yet experienced this type of meditation, I've found hypnosis, self-hypnosis and meditation in general to be extremely important in gaining perspective, peace and inspired direction. Lynch & Roth's philanthropic work of bringing meditation to populations in need, such as veterans, prisoners and students in inner city schools, is something I believe will make a profound, positive difference in our lives.

These pieces are 9"x12", xerographic transfer and gouache on watercolor paper. They incorporate symbols from Reiki and Astrology, additional tools I believe can provide us with insight and balance. These two refer to Lynch + the Foundation's connection to Los Angeles, though the organization also has centers in Chicago, Washington D.C., Jamaica and Africa.

The first was sent to the David Lynch Foundation, and the second will be auctioned in this year's upcoming 100 Pieces Show, a benefit for Safe Place For Youth.
