Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The artist’s hand is unlike any other. It moves with ease while also holding purpose and intent. The hand that holds the brush prepares for an elegant dance of vivid strokes. Delicate fingers reaching for the right tool, bending, snapping, stretching, fiddling. The impatient hand is fierce and relentless. An instrument of creation, operating with acute precision. Behold the hands, how they promise and entice. Conjuring an enchanting spell... Are you falling in love?
In his book “De Anima” (c. 350 BC), Aristotle explains, "It follows that the soul is analogous to the hand; for as the hand is a tool of tools, so the mind is the form of forms and sense the form of sensible things." Hands are tools themselves by which we are able to utilize tools, in a similar way that the mind is a form by which we apprehend other forms. The artist’s hand brings forth life and love and lust. It conveys emotions and force and commands. Which makes the eyes envious of the artist’s hands.
