This event has ended.

Michael Katz crafts abstract expressionist images vibrant in color and transcendent in depth, suggesting the dynamism and layers of the Buddhist journey. A writer, doctor and visual artist, Katz orchestrates fragments toward unity in ways playful and animated. Katz says, “The artist is akin to the alchemist transforming the mundane into the transcendent as an alternative to the gross materialism and deadening conformity too present in our daily life. In my art I seek to communicate a sense of possibility, freedom, energy, and spontaneity as I weave symbols and a personal vocabulary...My work is frequently suggestive of inner dynamism, mystical forms and elusive meanings that excite and linger just beyond the tip of the tongue.”

Katz has authored two books on dreams, Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light and Tibetan Dream Yoga: The Royal Road to Enlightenment and teaches others to achieve lucidity and awareness in dreaming. As a psychologist, he strives to translate the mystic into a western context. He also authored The White Dolphin, which seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues, and a book of poetry, The Crossing.
