Artist Statement

 

“The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my soul is grooved to run.”

– Herman Melville (Moby Dick)

An artist is both poltergeist and the possessed, a savage to illusion and beauty.  Damned in his nature to act out his creation and make way a more merciful and permanent the vulnerable body, and how continuous his blood does flow.

And from the spirit of all origins there is this demand that casts out a confrontation of thousand selves in a whirlwind argument, whereon the soul and syntax breed an unknown image.  An image succumbed to the paradox of that to which there are no words, only a whisper,

“I must.”
