Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

“Spiritual Laundry” a spin cycle or inherited trauma? To question what is washed-away and to where. Such laundry may well be the work of a great actor. Cycles or seasons are synonymous with nature but this precludes praeternature and teenage speculation. Beyond the planet we assume an intelligence unhewn. That such is concealed to knowledge does not mean it is concealed to feeling.

This cycle guards and reveals but not always to the one who first experienced it. Such statements risk banal mysticism however, we may be greater than mortal redactions and crack a memory; that is by tinge of nature or intelligence, and we may break the symmetry of an emotion by true feeling.

Artist Profile

Born: 1976

Hometown: Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Based in: Singapore

I paint to address the question of thinking and the potential nonhumanity of the near future; a seemingly inevitable historicization exceeding the inhumane. Art must not become an entirely historical reprise. Whether an artist likes it or not “the artist is driven” in this way.

When painting I engage the substrate with deference to what is abstract to thought and the meditative act which immediately follows. I delay the conceptual phase, I avoid technical supremacy as emphases, opting for resemblances of the initial abstract I cannot plan in advance.

Similar to poetry subject matter is secondary, in the sense that I do not intend it as much as it is offered freely from an unknown. I readily admit to a mystification by this which, if over-indulged, would reduce the potential glimpse of thinking.
