I consider myself to be a spiritual artist, which is becoming more and more of an oxymoron it seems. From its inception, art was a highly spiritualized tool. Cave paintings were used to show the intricate relationship between man, nature and the heavens. Greek and Roman art from antiquity dealt mostly with reverence to their gods. And more recently artists like Caspar David Friedrich used art as means of expressing their experience of the divine.

In the world of contemporary art, spirituality seems to have very little relevance.
