Piece description from the artist
Part of the portal series, the "Second Sun" represents a new wave of hope and optimism. A portal of awakening. Through the portal series I create graphic, geometric gateways to inspire a shift in consciousness. When you experience my portal, I want it to act as a reminder to take a deep breath, enter the “portal,” and tune into your higher self where you can access higher vibrational energies and expanded awareness.
