To dumb down. The objects/paintings I make are an index of the force of art at work in the mind translated through the hand. Playing. To Make, to change, to more fully explain. To turn over all sides. To attempt to more fully describe psychological aspects of life that make it worthwhile. To fail in doing so. To stumble through. To create meaning. To describe the abstract nature of the world. To translate the range of possibility within what is perceived as stupidly obvious. To attempt to understand the implications of law. To try to understand the limitations of order and definition. To question those laws. To find value outside of currency and the structural systems that delegate it’s exchange, function, production and accumulation in order to manipulate those systems through playing with action figures in a sand box. To create the world.
