Ready to Hang

In particular, I find nostalgia, daydreams, and dreams to be incredibly powerful. They have the ability to evoke such strong feelings and emotions. Through them you can fall in love, feel happy, sad, angry, or find utterly profound beauty. Dream logic also is something that has always lured me. I live in my head a lot of the time, letting my thoughts go where they need to. Images flash before my mind's eye, giving me a split second glimpse into something, accompanied by a mood and a feeling. I am intensely interested in these glimpses and the feelings surrounding them.

In particular, I find nostalgia, daydreams, and dreams to be incredibly powerful. They have the ability to evoke such strong feelings and emotions. Through them you can fall in love, feel happy, sad, angry, or find utterly profound beauty. Dream logic also, is something that has always lured me. I live in my head a lot of the time, letting my thoughts go where they need to. When I don't have anything going on, I like to sit alone and think. In a matter of seconds I can fabricate an elaborate storyline where lifetimes are lived out. Through these fictitious narratives, I catch a spit-second glimpse into something. Images flash before my mind's eye, leaving an impression that stains me, accompanied by a mood and a feeling that pour into my psyche. I am intensely interested in these glimpses and the feelings surrounding them, and I believe that is what I'm really after in my picture-making. The magic truly takes place when we exit our comfort zones. I am especially interested in my process and seeing what can happen. There are moments in painting, (or any creative medium really) that I find profoundly beautiful, such as watching the unexpected materialize. In those moments I fall in love, and remember why I'm doing what I'm doing.
