About The Jerusalem SeriesPosted: February 17, 2021
“I’m not trying to create art. I’m trying to create religious experiences.”
Jerusalem is not a place, but a mindset.
In 1997 I started drawing on the back of business cards, just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar.
Over time this format got more spiritual in nature. Over time the process got less about social commentary, more about meditation. Eventually I realized art without a transcendent dimension was worthless.
Over time this became The Jerusalem Series. A spiritual exercise, more than anything else.
I chose the name, “Jerusalem” because I love the idea of there being a truly Holy place, somewhere closer to God than anywhere else. Hopefully though art, we can all create that same place in our own head. Fans of William Blake will know what I’m talking about.
