Promethean Dreams is…
Promethean Dreams is derived from Prometheus, the Greek god who stole fire and gifted it to humanity.
An exploration of the visual form of a flame. Captured in a moment, frozen in an abstract, each flicker fascinates as it caresses and careens through an invisible world.
It is a slice of primal force that takes on its own life and personality, which causes us to stare in rapture.
To worship at the hearth, as we have done since the beginning.
Some see angels and dragons, while others see dancers and waves.
Both, and neither, are correct as this primal element echos to something deep inside us all.
Fire, the primal element that gives birth to the universe and all that is within it. It is a catalyst for change, both destructive and rebirth.
It is the violent oxidation that changes everything.
