Home School Claremont 2017
I am a non-media specific artist, and my work is usually project based. Typically, when I start a project, I explore the subject territory as thoroughly as possible. Sometimes images come to me in waves, often pushing through the news of the day as the Bulls in Pamplona run through life’s textures. People, places, and things circumscribe my marks, objects, and sounds occasionally allowing me to see around corners. Looking into the future is not difficult. The problem is acceptance; accepting that lives can change due to actions done in the here and now. At times it’s just an errant word or aroma that lifts the curtain, because the present, as our future, is nothing more than multiple images; not just any images but the ordered relocation of our past. For me, peeking under that curtain reveals the base upon which rests our unconscious desires, whose ultimate goal is self-actualization.
