Artist's Statement

Through persistence, time, and resistance we come to a greater understanding of the truth. This in turn changes the nature and structure of our ideology that is intrinsically linked to the truth. This brings to question, the process involved in the formation of an ideological set, which uses the container and demarcation as its parameters. Through the contained, we attempt to grasp some basic truth or understanding. We then proceed to put these containers in a hierarchal and logical order, demarcating each for a particular use. It is the artist’s inclination (the creative mind) to break these containers or at the very least bring them into question so they may be rearranged and improved upon.

Truth = Ideological Set (defined by) Containers and Demarcation (achieved through) Persistence, Time, and Resistance
