His story as an artist began over forty-two years ago. It has culminated to this point where it has reached its most vivid, vital role and reaches deeper into the roots of his soul than ever before. He feels an extreme connection to what he does and feels that the universe works through us, creating this…whatever it is, art. He happened upon this technique through experimentation with LSD, when he was 19. It was during a prolific period of painting and he was doing a lot of crazy, creative experiments.
He wasn’t working on any one piece for very long before jumping from one to the other, and another, and so on. At one point he had used up all nearly all his art supplies but had nothing finished. Canvases, boards, paper, all sprawled out, half finished pieces here and there. It was then, that this process was born. The chaos of this creative period did pay off. Knowing he had something different, he dived further in.
People’s reaction to his work and the fact that he truly enjoyed what he was doing made him realize he had a lot more work to do. Hearing that abstract art was having a great resurgence and this was the golden age of abstract art only fuels his compulsion.
Curious about what can be created, fascinated and humbled by this strange creation process of his, he often says that he is ‘just a hand that moves a brush.
