As a collective in an accent towards novelty, art bridges the gaps that language leaves. We birth solutions to our woes through the creative expression of individuals who pause long enough to hear the call. Anything else in my mind is speculation. I have re-wrote my statement enough times to learn that my biggest mistake has been to be concrete in my views and processes. My art has become about curiosity. Each painting is a dive into a particular observation hoping to visually explain what I fall so short on linguistically.
The fields that drive my curiosity most are synchronicity, perspective, and that curiously interactive force that lies just beyond where logic can take us. I do not know for sure that we will ever grasp it, but I feel it imperative to try.
As for why I do it… I truly do not know yet.
I left Mississippi 2010. After traveling the Western states in pursuit of adventures, I was led to earning an art degree from the University of Utah in 2015. Landing in Portland after graduating, I discovered visionary art.
