recent works : Introducing "Art-Ass"

the eternal calling to make art - Won't Die

After proclaiming to be done with the internal (and eternal) turmoil of artist survival, I stumbled upon a new muse; a spirit animal of sorts and did my best to make really bad art with it.

Introducing Art Ass. If I cannot kill off the artist in me at least I can make fun of it. Although I was poking fun, I strongly believed this body of work combines all the aspects I have been exploring over the past decade. Each painting allowed me to repurpose ideas and concepts as well as discovery.

While exploring this intentionally horribly rendered character - I became enamored with the purity of process once again.

Actually because of its cathartic nature, I have always loved process more than the outcome. It is my sanctuary. A place where I can be great and on fire. Simply said, creating revives me. The tears of torment transcend into tears of joy and hope. This is exactly where I want to be.
