Artist Statement “The meaning behind an artistic image can sometimes be different to the viewer than it is to its creator”.
Art comes from the same region of the brain that dreams do, so different than the region that tries to organize and process the vast amounts of information we are constantly exposed to. And like a dream, you can only make sense of it after it has occurred or been created. By that measure, the artist’s interpretation of it belongs in the same category as the viewer’s. Each brings their own set of unique experiences to it.
So, even if I, as the artist have a passionate story behind an image, it’s no more valid than the viewer’s. Culturally we are very oriented to put everything into words, but the visual is a valid language of it’s own.”
