dc.description.abstract“To the viewer, I offer my best and worst moments and a great deal of the mundane. Art is no finite concept, art is. It doesn’t start or end at any particular point, it exists on a continuum – it’s a matter of whether you choose to take part in it or not. I would like to think life itself is an artistic experience, and some of us merely emphasize the fact. Each stroke and impression of consequence, good or bad, leaves a mark, and you the result. Conceptually, we have very defined ideas of what art is and how to go about it, a notion that very well translates to our conceptions of life; I want to explore the negative space of this conceptual realm, acknowledging what I think most of us, at least I do, fear to acknowledge: our imperfections. At the end of the day, you are your best work. So I invite you to join me in the experience of life through my art; the highs and lows, the depressions and delusions, as well as instances of pure and utter boredom. This is my case study.”en_US
