Pain and sorrow, nausea robbing me of all the words needing to be spoken...
I do believe that
With every action of how one lives
We can change how the world exists.
But we need to eradicate the conditioning implemented systematically in cultures brainwashing for such cruelty to exist. Mentalities continuing to seed rather then heal the rift, purposely kept alive and created through history.
Authoritarian systems polluting culture, the way of being people with people, all equal, although not allowed to be, century after century.
Hierarchies of society, fear shaped realities kept in place by fake facts, power and politics, by economy.
As people, as friends, neighbours, sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers.
We can change the spiel.
Every one of us in their own lives, own way, take action, don't just speak, live accordingly, and don't seed new racism in the name of equality.
Don't turn against those souls standing next to you, fighting for the same truth.

We are inundated with visual art. A lot has been said about "audience". We all have our particular biases.
When you take a moment to look at another artist's work, what do you seek out? Do you ever look outside your preferences?"
"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. The depth of intellectual, sensual, and emotional experiences innately influencing the genius and origin of creativity highlighting the arts valleys and crests.
