ARTIST STATEMENT

My current work is an excavation of the inheritance of the past which reveals the undercurrents of cosmology and personal perception by alluding to tropes of the urban environment via the incredible act of mark-making on canvas with vivid acrylic color --similar to street art. I frame every piece in an unremarkable pure white frame to emphasize each expression.

It's impossible for a divided mind to navigate troubled waters effectively and dream big.

A little birdie told me

And that other birdie told me


"White is very scary, No don't go there!"

"What about there?", I asked

"No stay away."


These birds be chirping everyday

Demanding and commanding

Confusing and abusing

Leading me astray

Then I heard them all applause when I found the middle way

Yup! I hit the road

Jack-pot

Ran it straight up the center

Slam dunk

Through the net

Hole in one


Fuck the goalie

We kick it holy


Flying with my feet on the ground

Staying round, no rough edges

All trimmed hedges

This is beyond no ledges


Knowledge is just the beginning

Truth is there is no ending


Tweet tweet

Hit the twitter and socialize

Let the world know I got the rock

Birds be chirping, still chirping

But there's a sure thing

They'll die and in the morning

We'll all begin to rock

Steady

Steady

Rocking all night long.

We are like fruity pebbles and flint stones. We carry seeds and set the forest a blaze.


The best way for me to express the meaning behind a piece is with a poem. Shop


Seeds and doors

Trees and gates

Blood on leaves

The great escape


Expand, contract

Retreat, contact

Remember, remind

Forget, rewind


Forever the wheels will turn

Forever the rocks will grind

Stones to dirt

Spirit to earth


This is the great work

Internal states are like trees. Solids, liquids and gases coalesce as food for bee's.

Solids liquids and gasses

Unite to feed the masses

Masses


I’m a wet mass

Chain so heavy

Head so light

Light, Light

Light it up

My fire finally erupt!

Cheers from the great ones

Of which I’ve become


Time to touch down and tell em’

Them sleeping giants...

They already won!

Hey, Hey!

They already one!

Shine already

Climb already

IT IS already!


Eat cake

Light candles

Celebrate with us!


It is done.
