Artist's Statement

My work is currently based on a reformation of the artistic process and the way in which the artist relates to his and her art, and the self.
The aim is to create an ability to freely compose and create images with the training of the artist as a method of developing the self and the use of learning and the importance of choice to develop exponential and versatile personal tools rather than linear pavlovian skills.
The goal is to understand the meaning and purpose behind artistic choices and wield that understanding and meaning. Engineered beauty, accomplished through the non-chaotic chaos of devotion to the path of the self.
