Art & Design
The written part of this project is primarily comprised of short elaborations on my experience, feelings and perceptions, first as a painter, then as a person. It is a description of occurrences which reflect my general level of motion around and within the time of the creative act. These pages also harbor negative feelings for tradition, it has become burdensome and restraining in a reality which is never motionless and therefore never constant, and so is subject to continuous variations.
In short, it involves all the rational and irrational activity of myself as an artist and how environmental circumstance may leave its mark in the life and paintings of the artist in the form of symbols.
