Proposal Title: Blanket of Comfort-ness Memorial, 03/17/2008, Mixed media
Proposal Synopsis: Artist Statement
I am currently working in mix media works. My emphasis is in the exploration of painting and drawing and of how they relate and a sit in the art term. I Am investigation the boundaries and tampering with the ideal or traditional visual perceptions. I also in the process hope to explore sociological issues in hopes of bringing my environment into my work to express the personal and the social element and hope to understand its intervals.
Art is for me a "blanket of comfort-ness" it is my tool, my vehicle to navigate and explore the universe. This vehicle, art, does not belong to me; it's shared by many and is available for all to share and travel with. I invite all to use and find their own "blanket of comfort-ness."
