WHY I MAKE ART AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS
Most of the time I believe in the power of words to convey an emotion thought or idea. That is true except when it comes to discussing or explaining or describing A R T, which by its very nature uses many skills that are beyond or removed from words.
I can say I paint because it is a way of understanding life.
I can also say that I paint order to reign in personal demons.
I can say I paint to express experiences of personal sorrow, grief, isolation and joy. This would all be true but at the same time fiction, a book with confusing, ambiguous prose. I paint to see what I want to paint. I create a world that is drenched in color, light, forms, patterns and textures. I paint to learn what I can and cannot do.
I paint and give a nod to the words akin to someone waving at a tornado full of bombastic fragments. These particles all swirl around and finally settle down quietly to contemplate a visual poem. The poem itself lacking all words.
