My family is not religious, yet somehow I managed to spend a great deal of my formative years and beyond sitting in a church pew. Chasing After The Wind is a series of works exploring a personal state of balance between religious and secular groups with which I am closely connected.
The title comes from the biblical book Ecclesiastes. In the text the phrase is used synonymously with the word “meaningless,” and in his search for the meaning of life, the author concludes that most pursuits are futile.
The extraordinary, magical elements of religion are what I am continually drawn to and also where I find the most disappointment. It is within the internal contradictions of belief and skepticism, wonder and reason, as well as through a constant investigation of truth versus fiction, that I found inspiration for these works.
