Great Art Exists As A Glimpse
The visual arts pick up where verbal communication leaves off. Therefore, talking too much about art specifically can be a tricky undertaking and often is an interference with the experience of the work.
My work is primarily interested in some of the more intangible aspects of the human experience - mood, tone, and the atmospheric nature of how we as humans perceive the world. I don't look to art to tell a story, to take up issues - whether social or political. All I look to art to do is to simply exist and in so existing to express something in the simplest and most direct manner possible.
