My work is a mixture of photography, photo-maipulation
,and digital painting.The idea behind the work at it's most
basic level is the diversity of mankind. The complexity and
the total lack of absolutes. Everyone of us is completely
different. And within each individual are even more
differences ...Yet we all have the exact same things . Two
eyes , a nose , a mouth, lips , and heart emotions. We are
the same. So , to my thinking , at it's most abstract level ,
the work represents the 'GOD' quotient! Only an intelli-
gent being could create life with with such wit!
So what I do is create a canvas out of a human face , and
on to it , it project my sensibilities , aesthetic, fantasies, social
, political , cultural , and religious ideas . I love to juxtapose
the colors black and white , as well as African and Japan-
ese cultures . To prove that both black and white are absolutely
gorgeous. We have, as a world community got to stop
separating ourselves. We have to stop fostering self hatred
in people of color,and promoting lies about race , and cult-
ture . The truth is , that within every possible demographic
of society lies the entire gamut of the human experience.
the are intellects , half wits, lairs ,and truth tellers geniuses
and mentally impaired there are the frail and the powerful ,
the kind and the cruel. There is no one group among us
the do not posses all the good and bad of being human .
For that matter , there is no one person , that do not posses
this multidimensionalism. So why do we lie?
Now , that said. I also believe that art does not always have
to be profound , sometimes it's 'just because' , or 'why not?' ,
or it's fun or beautiful and that's all , take from it what you will.
