I'm an aesthete, a minimalist, an artist, creative, and emotional, my art is its by-product.
For a statement on who I am and my by-product, I must take myself and dissect it to find out what unravels. The source of my artistic creativity is consumed by self-evaluation, as is the case for many artists. I find that the core to this inspiration tends to be my emotions on underlying issues and my own self-evaluation.
These issues that I address in my work are not uncommon to the everyday man, the fragility of family dynamics, the never-ending battle with oneself, the construction of society and the role that you play in it, and the underlying search for understanding.
My effort to express these subjects are obviously translated by me and relate directly to me.
On my travels as an artist and the search for my place in the art world I found myself to be rather lost. Obviously it is vast but finding my footing was always rather hard especially as I was not sure where to start looking for my inspiration. So I looked inward.
This is of course not uncommon to the artist, a prime example being Tracy Emin. The difference is I was not raped or abused at a young age as Tracy was but rather I have lived a full and rich life. So the search for "me" was finding the things that I found hard even though I had not witnessed the tragedies of life. I watched everything I could watch, analysed everything I could see, and then questioned it all.
It is no surprise that art projects such as "dyslexia" emerged as I am dyslexic. But for me this is the interesting part, as it is the in depth attempt to try to reproduce something that is in fact an intrinsic part of me and my search for understanding. I have always wanted to take ideas that I have that have huge amounts of complexity in its raw sense and translate it into a much purer simplistic three directional form.
This is key to dyslexia.
I have never had a particular preference towards a certain medium, but have always been swayed to the sculptural side of creativity.
But on the other hand I have a tendency to see the end product and not whether there will be large amounts of development, as I see it in my mind as a finalised piece. This is of course changed at certain points as the piece cannot be finished to the exact millimetre, but in this respect it is not important as the end image in my mind is only an end concept.
