Here is my artist statement for this piece:
"We experience enlightenment through requiem.
Death is the progression onto a higher level of being. To transform flesh into light is not an easy task, yet we must be moving to the next level in the process of spiritual ascension.
Birth and death bind the cycle of life.
Let our hearts be struck open by passion,
and listen to the music of the soul until the last day comes.
We will find ourselves in bliss, and remember who we truly are."
