is both revelation and contemplation:
can open our perception in ways we may not have anticipated, and direct
our gaze outward, into the world. When
we cease to find newness in our observation of the world around us and we
cease to wonder at its ever-changing complexity, we cease to grow.
Personal discovery is one of the strongest teachers.
I am most interested in art that stimulates personal growth by
fostering discovery and new perception.
can also narrow and sharpen the focus of our attention, pushing the world
aside. The daily world of
busy-ness, with an unending barrage of information and unfocused visual
and aural stimulation generates fatigue and dulls sensitivity. I am most interested in art that is capable of intensely
focusing our attention by shuttering the outer world.
I strive to achieve work that educates perception
and encourages contemplation.
