"In my art, I depict the human spirit in a mythic state of becoming and awakening. It is the culminating moment of spiritual transcendence when the soul becomes one with eternity, emerging from the elemental strata of fire, stone, ocean and wind.

My work is a dance of divinity and chaos, with the breath of desire rising in a flight of ascensional grace. The male creational forces are surging and inviolate. The female forces are yielding, sensual, gentle and compassionate. They combine their threads, weaving myriad planes of being, fractals of divinity awakened in light and love." – IRA REINES
