On one hand I want to focus on the concept of the work. Why does it need to exist? Is it existent because I am self-obsesed? It would be selfish for me to focus on something that has nothing to do with anything else, and in my mind, impossible. On the other hand, I am a hands-on person. I enjoy creating with my hands because I have inherited that joy from my grandmother and my father I’m sure. Idle hands are the devil’s playground and whatnot I suppose. Either way, I enjoy crafty things, when I make a painting that is abstract or representational that seems hollow or decvorative, more than likely I enjoyed bringing the object into existence. It is a meditative process for me. Which I understand is over-used, but it allows me to focus on one thing instead of a million others.
