“Cadigan’s artwork flourishes!”   - Los Angeles Times

“Masterful, intricate woodcarvings.” - Time Out New York

Francis Bacon once said the job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.  Through my work, I invite audiences into the exploration of mystery – the mysteriousness of the imagination, of the marvelous and of the divine.

In life, and in art, we are drawn to that which embodies a “special something.”  I aim for my work to evoke an experience of that ineffable something, which is - for me - the defining aspect of spirituality.

“Extremely affecting... Primal psychological symbols - faces, snakes and writhing bodies - are rendered in a haunting, almost medieval style.”
