Expressive and gestural are the works that I create,
Formed with a lofty vision and a careful hand
Color and value seek each other as lost lovers
Texture is their favorite child.
What the hell am I writing about?
The purpose is the experience, not the product
What do they want from me?
I can't be the perfect artist I'm supposed to be!
I put my hands into images. I stir them up.
I am not unique. Everything has been done before.
What is the point of doing it all over again?
What are my influences? Can I make them my own?
Art History: Da Vinci is a lot like me. Absolutely brilliant
couldn't get his ass together and do the work.
I've always admired the Renaissance artists, but
so has everybody else. I'm a cookie-cutter artist.
What good is an artist who is a carbon copy of every
other idiot to walk the earth?
I am the antithesis of an artist.
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
