Very early in my life, I found that words would not adequately communicate the nuances of my thoughts to others, nor could I talk myself through a complete thought. I have developed within my symbolism a visual language that I have constructed, textured and enriched over a life time. However, my purpose is not to create “art” but to leave visual, tangible evidence that I existed, witnessed, and validated the human experiment. I, along with so many others have used my unique senses to continue the evolution of understanding of the human condition. The earliest cave painters did not know what art was, nor were they motivated to create art, they had a much more purposeful mission.
Truly I do not know what I have done when I create. I do not define myself as a watercolorist, painter, sculptor or draftsman. I do not understand why many “artists” need to categorize or compartmentalize their art. I do know that all our senses should be engaged in the making as well as the interpreting of what is called “art”. I do know that the remnants and artifacts that I leave behind validate my life, and may perhaps someday be a help to others. I have been comforted in my encounter with the works of others who have gone before. Hopefully my journey will reveal to others some insight to assure the continuance of the human quest.
