*sometimes i write in an elusive art speak that can only be understood either with explanation or by those who can decipher this type of language but sometimes i write in a style that is a little bit more immediate...
honestly, i code switch depending on who i think the reader might be. i have no desire to be the type of writer that caters only to one type of reader. there are just certain ideas that can only be communicated or accessed through a particular vernancular and i see no point in limiting oneself through language. i approach artmaking with the same premise.
the root of my art practice is simple... i read a lot... i mean a lot... and that informs most of what i do. what i am interested in is an artless art, an idea-centric focus so to speak. i am research based but i consider any and everything that i do as research.
i do things that can be categrozied under the labele of new genres but i do not make work just for the sake of the avant-garde... i do think believe that art for art sake is an artless art but i do believe that making things to communicate an idea without regards for art can be artless.
sometimes i play with politics. sometimes i'm controversial and provocative, sometimes i can be trivial and ironic, but either way, i live to embrace... to be quite honest, i live art and what i am talking about is something that exsists beyond the white walls of a gallery or museum space. there is art in the everyday and my hope is to make sense of that.
