Bah...updated artist statement again

My last artist statement simply said, "I like to paint." So, I had to update it, obviously.

My work explores the relationship between emerging sexualities and urban spaces.

With influences as diverse as Nietzsche and Roy Lichtenstein, new combinations are crafted from both explicit and implicit layers.

Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the mind. What starts out as triumph soon becomes corrupted into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of decadence and the inevitability of a new reality.

As temporal phenomena become frozen through diligent and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the possibilities of our era.

Thanks to Bethany for sharing this link. :-)

The Forgotten Blog

Nah, not really. I promise I will update it more very soon, but life has been pretty....well, not so much busy, but eventful.

I have been much more involved with The German Village Art League lately. I am currently serving as Secretary of the group, so I have been volunteering my time for GVAL events and promoting GVAL and its artists. Check out the site.

Still very involved with Sublime is in hold at the moment, but it will continue again very soon with interviews with Francesco D'Isa (Porn Saints) and other artists...well, these things are currently in the works and soon to be defined.

And painting! Trying to keep inspired. Loving my new studio...the space is much bigger than before - gotta love that...
