I’ve been thinking a lot about the repetition and patterns of mandalas versus “free form” painting lately. Both seem to represent a stream of conscious- with mandalas, it is more of a meditation working from the inside out. With free form, it’s almost as though the brush knows what is on your mind before you do.

This poster design is inspired by Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.” The lyrics, which are repeated in the background with high transparency, include the line “We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.” I’m not sure why this song speaks to me so strongly, but perhaps that is a deeper personality analysis for a later time.

A lesson can be learned from a walk in the woods.
Sometimes there are perfectly growing patches of grass right there by the water in the sunlight. But sometimes there are shaded areas covered in rock and frequently stepped on. In those areas, grass of a different kind can be found.
These patches are a bit thicker and not as soft. These patches are the ones that had to work to where they are. They stand strong for they know how life can be full of struggles and obstacles, but those can be overcome.
These tuffs are exactly that, tough. It takes a certain kind of work, a certain kind of dedication, a certain kind of toughness to fully appreciate and succeed in this world. If a patch of grass can comprehend and act on that, there is no reason we cannot do the same.

Handmade seashells

Plaster, concrete, acrylic paint

Natural beauty is something I find very intriguing. This is something that goes not only for a person’s appearance, but all objects made by nature. Everything and everyone is made from what the world has done. In regards to these shells, I have attempted to recreate this beauty but have failed. There is nothing that I can do, as a person, to create such beauty as the originals. As an artist, as a person, I can merely attempt to recreate.
