Am I brave?
I use gunpowder and fuse. I blow up my art.
I'm trying to create something bold. Something that has never been heard of before.
My work goes through an intense process of layering paint, burning, scraping and drawing.
I am not afraid to mix things up. Creating with energy.
I'm now starting some stronger abstractions.
Blacks. Grays. Burns.
Some sort of hybrid "Pop" art.
It's emotional doing this. It' s a change.
Or am I just exploring the deep seeded, unconscious, corners of my mind?
Blacks. Grays. Burns. If my work is consumed and judged. Is that all I have upstairs?
If I am fearless.
Why am I so scared?
