The attitude of creating is like the attitude you have toward life
I believe that through expressing digesting and exemplifying oneself through art
One not only discovers material and visuals in process but also ones own interaction throughought the process
From the whole array of emotions to thoughts and reflections and physicality involved in creation, it encourages the acquainting and understanding with oneself. Relation is found to the macro image of oneself in life.
the importance of exposing the individual to the senses through artistic exploration, to give room for understanding the self, material process, therefore the workings of the natural and human made systems and infrastructures around us.
with creative process realising the potential of the individual, the local and global community, through realising how it has shaped our existence from the first cave drawings to contemporary, art, design, economy, culture, music and politics.
Using art as a way to study and understand material
As a result one perceives and grasp the structures and systems at work surrounding the individual and the community more transparently.
One sees what is at work and what the gesture impacts. Therefore reflection on choice of action is emphasised and results in a more consciously interweaving network of reactions and results as a whole.
Furthering efficiency, quality of life and products, longevity, sustainability of products, which is opposed to planned obsolescence, profit even if destroying unrenewable resources and polluting remaining renewable and unrenewable, due to capitalistic structures demanding hierarchical dependence. rather then an equilibrium where the values are in the sustaining of nature,health and wealth of resources, shared equally among believes and nations.

Out of the moment, conscious of the natural and historical frameworks surrecting the possibility for my existence and gesture. Therefore the process of making art is driven by a curiosity for the immaterial and material substances inherent and surrounding us.

There is an urge to get closer, observing the layers of impact which creation has. Studying how humans react to different dimensions of materials, mediums and subject matter. on a seek to learn and understand the psychology of the human and our culture. The axioms of actions creating sustenance and harmony or destruction and imbalance. Through the process of art, digesting and describing a pedagogy for living in the lasting moment.

A resulting sensuousness and awareness of internal and external structures allows me to find greater understanding of the world and perceive the correlation between our culture and the natural and man made environment."

"When looking at others' art works, what do you look for?
We are inundated with visual art. A lot has been said about "audience". We all have our particular biases.

"I observe the individual presence of the piece then its title in relation, read as poetry. In the piece or If more work present the coherence or history of growth presented in the gestures aesthetic, the exploration and curiosities discovered throughout the body of work. The recognitions drawn traced by color, contrasts and perspective, the textures and layers used to imply mood or moment.
