Upside-Down Root Laughter

Study for a larger installation below.


Three of my paintings are showing in Milan, Italy and Fuertventura, Canary Islands, Spain this month. Details here: M.A.D.S Art Gallery.

About the art: What's going on here?

My art is designed to break you out of the dream state.

It's merely a stop sign.

Stop on this church.

Stop on this crow.

Stop on this stopped wave.

Are you still moving? Are you still?

Maybe you should laugh?

This is just paint on canvas.

This is important.

This is unimportant.

This is art.

This is a temporary truth.

This is truth and beauty.

This is truth minus beauty.

This is truth.

This is belief.

This is a lie.

All these will be frozen. . . then thawed.

All these will be burned.

This is nothing.
