ANATOMY OF A FIRE

ANATOMY OF A FIRE

RADICAL EXORCISM

RADICAL EXORCISM

INTROSPECTION

INTROSPECTION

my eyes were first met by visions when i was 24…psychic angels connecting smoke and light–earth, body, and sky…floridly manic i flew through central park imagining myself as a primal hunter gatherer…i felt time slow then accelerate–i felt my power…i imagined a destiny beyond time–beyond the parameters of our earthly condition…i felt an all encompassing …
