Today marks my mother’s Birthday, which means it is a day of celebration. Happy Birthday Mom! It is also the anniversary of my father’s suicide, making it a day immense weight. It’s a mix of emotions, but certainly a day of feeling a great deal.

I did not learn of my father’s story until I was 28 and reconnected with my long lost family. Shortly after, I wrote “Michael’s Note,” the suicide note my father never left. It was followed by “Reign Upon Sunrise,” a 5 year tribute project navigating a spectrum of emotions, thoughts, and experiences…a life that continued after another was lost. It reflects heavily upon they dynamics of relationships, mental health, and my own personal battles that almost let to a similar fate.

My greatest struggles in life have also provided my greatest opportunities…the opportunities to grow, to be more, and at times, to simply survive so that I could make it to another day and share my story with those that are fighting their own battles and struggling to find their voices. My greatest silver lining through everything has been the opportunity to be that for someone else.

“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-

Michael
