In my most recent body of work, titled "Julanite," I had the privilege of showcasing these pieces during my second solo exhibition in London back in September. The term "Julanite," an invented word, was inspired by one of the expansive paintings featured in the show, encapsulating my ongoing admiration and celebration of the inner landscapes of the mind.
My perception of the imagination diverges from the conventional and exclusive notion tied to fantasy or creative problem-solving. Throughout the creation of this new body of work, I drew much inspiration from an enlightening essay written by Henry Corbin, titled 'The Mundus Imaginalis.' Corbin's insights offered me a deeper understanding, shedding light on the possible origins of the ineffable visions that arise under the influence of entheogens.
