Philosophy of Art

First of all, we live in a technological and instant gratification period of historical society. In addition, everything in our daily lives seems to transfer at a “speed-of-light.” Due to scientific research, technology and new daily discoveries – we further ourselves away from simplicity.

Furthermore, we continue farther and farther away from our natural humanistic state of being. Consequently, we lose touch with the elemental, the beautiful and living in the PRESENT. Due to all of the life chaos, people have lost the awareness of the true things – the little things.

Most of all, we forget to notice the pollen hanging on a pistol within flower. We lose touch with the sensation of the soft grass under our naked feet. Also, we forget the feeling of butterflies landing on our fingers. As a result, finding a four leaf clover seems impossible or remembering the electrical shock when we embrace our true love.

Responsiveness

Personally, I respond and create to the feelings within the energy flow through nature and a father holding his son in deep unconditional love. Also, don’t forget the way your pet smiles when returning home for the day. Express gratitude towards a beautiful blooming flower and the color of the sky that invokes the human imagination.

In turn, we must let go of the anvil of stress and stop for a moment. In addition, see things that human kind has now displaced as ordinary or nothing.
Furthermore, I want my work to open people’s perceptions and make SEE life and the world again. I crave for humankind to feel life again through the eyes of their soul – a human’s true essence.

Humility

In conclusion, I believe that Camille Pissarro understood this concept and was well before his time in saying, “Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”

“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.” ~ Vincent van Gogh
