“Life. Freedom. Individualism. Culture. Without art – in any form – we do not have culture and really wouldn’t be able to describe ourselves as a civilization. Art is everything. Art fights the darkness. Art gives hope. Art relieves. Art is therapy. Art is essential to our human condition. It also allows me to vent about the current state of our society. Sometimes through sheer force of color application or, as in a new series I’m starting, through direct illustrative comparing of my childhood and current times – social, cultural and political. The new work I am producing reflects what I think a lot of people are thinking about how politics and world events feel very out of control. I respond to that kind of realization by creating artwork to either work it out in my own psyche or provide some viewpoint on what I think is happening and showing that to the world to generate more conversation.”
