Artist's Comments:

This collage project was influenced by readings on quantum physics, vedant theory and practice. It is also a continuation of the concerns of my earlier works into the nature of identity and the true self.

The collage elements were embraced as a symbol of the multiplicity of the true Self; and identity is seen as indivisible from the total collective self, no matter what form, viewer or time period.

The images were created in a somewhat random way, to express the sublime, absoluteness, and the indivisible and unfathomable nature of life.

The food elements were stemming from a previous collage series touching on the concept that "you are what you eat", or to expand it more fully, "you are what you think".

Due to the copyright laws that govern the "real world", I have not attempted to market or show the 4 -6 larger pieces. One larger group of collages was shown in the Ace Art members show in 1992.
