Influenced by the concepts of cymatics (sound creating geometric shapes) and Carl Jung’s mandala therapy. In the 90’s he incorporated more direct symbolism into his works in an attempt to reach the deeper subconsciousness of the viewers. In his later years, he has moved into a more Asian themes studied at school yet sparked by a more growing Taoist philosophy of life.
