“Reign Upon Sunrise” Flashback

“Reign Upon Sunrise” Flashback

In August 2012, at the age of 28, I was reconnected with the biological family I never knew. At that time, I learned that my father, also named Michael, did not die in a car accident as I had always been told. Rather, I came to find out that he took his own life on my mother’s 21st Birthday, just shortly before I turned a year old. He did not leave a note. Almost 30 years later, in my most personal and emotional creation to date, I wrote that note for my father. Written through our collective heart, eyes, and hand, that piece of our soul is “Michael’s Note.”

“Michael’s Note” was followed by half a decade of critical introspection, reflection, and expression in the form of a visual history paradoxically representing a singular moment, time, and experience as well as momentum, time, and experience in their totality. Completed in the Spring at the age of 33 and given life in conjunction with the Summer Solstice, “Reign Upon Sonrise” is a five year meditative reflection of a simple complexity, or “simplexity.” A 49 canvas polyptych with a myriad of possibilities and experiences, this meditation is a personal and elemental narrative veiled under the umbrella of a fractalized spectrum of sub-narratives called “Reigndrops.” Peering into the human soul with no definitive beginning or end, may you enjoy your journey across the “Reignbough” and discover the enlightenment you seek in the “Reign Upon Sonrise.”

Dedicated to the father I never had the honor and privilege to know-

Have you ever felt like you’re a little bit “extra” or maybe more than others? It could be anything, positive or negative. Maybe you’re more of a giver. Maybe you always work a little bit harder. Maybe you just always seem to have more thrown at you. Maybe you feel like you’re always more on the edge or stand out because you’re more noticeably different than those that surround you. I just want to tell you…It’s okay to be “More Than Most."
