From the Constellations to the man in the Moon, the Zodiac to the face on Mars, it has always been man's conceit to place himself among the stars. The Keyhole Project targets man's lofty and unending attempt to anthropomorphize the heavens. From straining to see through a narrow opening to unlocking and opening the door wide, the project explores our primitive and psychological need to make a human connection to the abstract and particularly with what we do not understand. Not only do we instinctively attempt to find a human context there, we search for the highest possible meanings - religious and spiritual themes. "Like peering into a crystal ball or cosmic reflecting pool, you will always see something of yourself reflected back to you." The Keyhole Project crosses the intersection of science and religion, inner and outer spaces, and offers the connection through visionary art.
