Omni-Phantasmic

Neil Carver’s series, “Omni-Phantasmic”, features underwater nudes as they portray the submersion of a conscious mind in the cloudy waters of the subconscious. Carver explains that the series is a visual voyage of metamorphosis into the subconscious waters of the mind: “The ultimate metaphysical quest into the undercurrent of consciousness.”

As he says in a foreword to the series: What you can perceive and process is an extremely finite portion of what you receive from the physical environment. And to truly grasp the vexing questions of your inner facilities, you must open yourself to a flood of unrestricted information. So one must dive into the cloudy placid waters of the subconscious world to uncover a linkage between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Once the excavation is started; the illumination of the self imposed restrains of values, ideas, and moral codes will dissolve. When the subconscious floods pass society’s imprisonment; starting a process of uncontaminated awareness; a penetrating understanding will unfold!

Neil Carver quickly became mesmerized by the creative process as a young boy. Beginning as an abstract painter and figurative sculptor, his motivation grew from an interest in chroma and psychophysical effects of these stimuli acting upon his five known senses. His creations are the exploration of his inner faculties in the pursuit of knowledge expressing “original thoughts”. Photography, he says, holds all the intrinsic values of all the other arts, but differs in the fact that it’s the foundation of existence. 

“Nothing can exist without the photon and every aspect is controlled by it’s usage.”
