Artist statement

“Repugnant is a creature squandering his ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.” – Maynard James Keenan

I am lost in this world, but I am not lost in myself.

I seek bewilderment in world that’s utterly flat, subdivided and pre-decided.

I find it in the freedom of art, a freedom to choose, to investigate without any responsibility of explaining it, for this is my journey and it’s solely the journey that matters.

I want to see it all, I want to try it all, and the clock is ticking.
