"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. 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.
Only through looking into the unknown outside I discover my preferences."
