There are a lot of variables in our lives that have to exist in harmony, or at least equilibrium.
My natural approach to most things is to determine what’s wrong or what could be improved, and then attempt fix it or make it better. Unfortunately, that requires a constant comparison and judging of things.
Things don’t have to exactly look like something in order to remind you of something.
I used to have a long commute and I tried lots of things to pass the time. One was reciting multiplication tables as quickly and rhythmically as possible. I never got very good at it.
It’s a fine balance for an artist to remain true to themselves while being open to the influence of respected others and desiring to connect with an audience.
Magritte’s “Treachery of Images” is a painting of a pipe along with the words “This is not a pipe,” in French of course. It gets more complicated when considering terminology, dots, pixels, and particles. But it’s still treachery.
I don’t believe in destiny, but I have a strong sense of probability and trajectory. Does this qualify as a selfie?
Because cantaloupe rhymes with antelope.
Occam’s Razor states that if there are two possible explanations for something, the one that requires the least speculation is usually correct. So is this a pair of antelope on the plains or abstract shapes?
The past leaves a multi-layered residue that gives us each a unique context for the present.
This piece is 20 years old today! I like to think that my work has evolved and gotten better since making my first digital art over 30 years ago, but no matter how far back I look, nearly all of the techniques and stylistic elements of my current work are still present.
I went to an outdoor art festival put on by the Art Students League of Denver. There was some really nice work there and it got me thinking about geographic influences.
I’m a sucker for hard science, time travel, and magical realism novels—pretty much anything that imagines transcending this world.
As much as I love art in all its forms, I have a hard time reading poetry–more practice needed.
