Watery Wombs: Memories of a Fetal Self

Watery Wombs: Memories of a Fetal Self is series initiated in 2011 as a source of meditative catharsis.

This collection of illustrations explores the nebulous spaces of memory and its origins. Floating ink-ridden pockets behave as conscious iterations of a hyperreality; compulsively recurring womb-like crevices and iconographic imagery meld together and mediate between finite and infinite. As personas, objects, and creatures are layered then grafted onto a personal mythical template, an alchemic map forms accounting for every element of its cosmology. Fragments of this topography dwell on themes of birth, death and rebirth, and organically mix the personal with the natural.

Watery Wombs: Memories of a Fetal Self is an ever expanding multi-volume ode to process, progress, and introspective action.
