I guess in some ways it’s like a marriage. However, currently I’m much more affectionate to my long term love. And much happier just being alone with it.
Actually, I feel that I’ve arrived at devotion. It’s nice, comfortable and we’re usually much kinder to each other these days. Gone are the torched artist days.
I pride balance I’m my work, for example in music, it’s usually obvious to most when a wrong note is hit, visually the smallest incorrectly balanced mark is disturbing to me. Well maybe there’s still a bit of torchering lol. No, but really it’s more like a friendly dialogue.
This particular body of work is very close to my heart, because my father who was a professional fisherman is no longer with us. So when I look to the sea, especially during a storm I feel fraught with a deep sense of longing.
So I hope these works find a place not only on walls but in hearts too.
Hoping to see you at the exhibition
