Flash of Perception - Preview of my upcoming book

Here is a teaser of my upcoming book called, "Flash of Perception."  The book features my photographs and mixed media artwork from the past 3 years, divided into five sections relating to the elemental energies of Water, Earth, Fire, Wind and Space.

These energies are active archetypal forces at work in all aspects of life and can be manifested in our own behaviors as either enlightened or neurotic forms.  The traditional Vajrayana Buddhist symbolism ties these forces with certain primary colors, so I have been experimenting with these saturated hues to see what impact they might have on viewers.  Can the colors actually invoke the energy?

This book is intended as an experiential artwork, a catalogue of work for sale and an object for contemplation.  If you enjoy these pages, I'll be posting ordering information here within a month so you can purchase your own copy of this book in either soft or hardcover.
