Art affects the viewer psychologically, intellectually, and above all, emotionally. But it becomes magical when it can be felt through warmth, softness, and touch. Silk is my medium and I am enchanted by this glossy miracle.
In addition to beauty and depth, my art addresses the idea that we live in a spiritual, meaningful world. Existence is permeated with a sense of belonging and coexistence.
For over thirty years I have been both a professional artist and a neurologist – neuroscientist. I have been artistically exploring the origins of thinking, of consciousness. How is it that we are aware of ourselves, of others? How is it that social interactions, culture, and civilizations arise? Basically, what is it that makes us human?
The layers of substance, meaning, and visual components in these silk works of art overlap and weave together, just as they do in my earlier works. The complexity of their design is equally as intricate as our own cognitive processes.
With these silk wraps I am taking art off gallery and museum walls and making it available to use and enjoy. There is no better way to appreciate art than to hold it close to your face, feel its warmth and smoothness. Each scarf’s beautiful design melds with your own inner self, leaving you entranced.
