Artist statement: My work grew from my love of the Afrofuturist Music of Sun Ra and his ‘Cosmic Philosophy’, which was a result of his claimed alien abduction to Saturn. Sun Ra’s Cosmic Philosophy may have been an act of personal mythology or the result of artistic creation, but as a consequence, he created some strangely beautiful music from beyond binding myths, the cosmos and all kinds of possible realities. Having experienced the unnerving world of sleep paralysis, I have sought to formulate and develop my own interpretation of what “otherworldliness” might be. I work with modular forms, by stretching and transforming material properties and attempt to make a unique building block for this faux universe. Many individual elements combine to create numerous building blocks, which are then tessellated to create a series of planetary forms.
