2017-2018 pink pain tings
Regardless of style (Ex. naturalistic, surreal, abstract, etc.), regardless of subject matter (Ex. figuration/nature, advertisement/culture, language/text, etc.), regardless of materiality (Ex. painting, drawing, print, sculpture, photography, digital imaging, etc.), or lack of materiality (Ex. conceptual, performance, virtual, artificial intelligence, etc.), art is essentially about the nature of reality. And reality is virtually synonymous with existence.
I spend a lot of time pondering the purpose of art, and the nature of reality/existence. I have slews of ideas of how to express my ponderances, and I frequently take notes. The note taking in turn inspires text-based pieces. My PINK PAIN TING series is born of this. When looking at any of the works, I intend for the viewer to find humor, and candor, and pain, and joy, …and a glimpse into my reality.
