ARTIST STATEMENT:
I used to philosophize about the possible realisms concerning communication of the soul, the subconscious mind, and the communal consciousness contained within my subjective experience. But, nowadays I like to keep things simple and cliché on different levels. Whereas I once thought my art transposed thought and invisible “stuff” into black line drawings, I have arrived at something simpler, where the interconnectedness , similarities, differences, contradictions, and undetected realms of nature all work together to achieve a state of perpetual harmony and resolve. I consider my art the kin of improvisational jazz and free-style rap where things ‘just happen’. But, I always arrive at the same conclusion, that life should be approached and lived with gratitude and enthusiasm.
