At what age do we stop to feel our own heart beat? nAt what age do we slow down and find a quiet place to just sit and feel our entire body? As we look at it as an organism? Listen to it’s vibrations and be fully aware this organism has a expiration date.
This quiet vibration is Art. To come to this destination and feel peace. To capture my own essence freely with out a care of what any one person will think of it. Yes, it is a tangible item. Yes, it is time. But isn’t that what living this life is about? To use infinite, irreversible time in connection our infinite Beautiful soul to leave just one tangible imprint behind for a fellow organism. Awaken. Trust yourself. In this flicker touch your darkness, touch your lightness, Grow your mind. Give us something beautiful and magnetic.
We can sit and meditate, feel inside ourselves. For some of us we already feel inside ourselves. We feel, with that sensation we develop an extension. That extension is to create. To inspire what is inside of us to flow outwards to connect with the same energies. This is painting, this is living. My purpose is that connection. Much love.
*Notes. Due to these works being on exibition out of state this year they have not been photographed yet. Shot with an iphone under fluorescent lighting. Qualty stills to come. In the meantime enjoy.
NYC kind of makes you hard. Its the only way to get by without being over stimulated. As hard as we seem we are all gentle somewhere inside. This painting came from that thought. Gentle creatures with something hard on the outside to protect ourselves. The Llama and the Dagger.
I was at the dog park it was dark and late. If you know my dog Gunner he's a slight wild man when it comes to ball. l playing. So I'm hanging about, kind of letting my mind drift. Some woman throws a ball and Gunner blindsided my knee from the right side. All seventy seven pounds took my knee and dislocated it. It was painful. As I laid there screaming someone called 911. I hurried up put it back in place and hobbled off as fast as I could. I'm not a fan of Ambulance rides. That tightrope on my heart is some ego.
In the past few years I've always painted with the concept of a destination. To put myself somewhere and create. With the current political climate and some lack of being challenged in my daily life I decided to paint from a standpoint. That is what you see in Staying the Night. Stand points. The title, Staying the Night is a take from a sexual standpoint. Painting is my passion and it is also my love. It has taught me more about myself and life than two hundred hours of mediation has ever. I Stay the Night because it stays with me.
