These drawings are intricate and unusual, meditative and provocative and I felt that a book would be the best venue for them. By helping me in this initial self publishing quest, you would enable me to put the work into as many hands as possible. It would also allow me to donate many of the books to libraries and individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford or access the material.
This from the foreword:
"Reaching out into the imaginal, he has created what Ibn ‘Arabi would call
a barzakh—a reconciling bridge—which occupies the gap between material
reality and the world of ideas. Each image draws us deep into questions about what happens when the “real” world is deconstructed back into the various fragments of emotion, thought, and tactile sensation that assemble themselves into our ordinary impressions.… This is a book you will find yourself picking up in those idle moments when the mind is in need of an unusual piece of stimulation; a special tidbit, something out of the ordinary. Every time you pick it up, it will look new all over again." — Lee Van Laer —from the Foreword
My only aim is to do what I love and to share it.
