I Like PINK and I’m not a Girl
I love PINK.
Let me be straight with you and
not color your world TOO BEAUTIFUL
I carry pain, all humans do.
The vulnerability I feel, most of the time, is why I am compelled to make Art.
I am pulling from a legacy of intergenerational pain,
mine and the collective’s.
I choose to be the container of it, just long enough to synthesize it,
into a candy-coated aesthetic, covering deep existential concern.
A philosophy of sorts develops,
A way of looking, seeing, developing, containing, ordering,
An extra-verbal artistic language,
Sight, sound, smell, touch, taste,
proprioception, equilibrioception, nociception, chronoception.
The intersection of painting, theatre, installation and sculpture, informs how I work, in part.
The body is the glue, bringing it all together, via performance.
Digital media functions as a capturing and ordering device,
a new category of art emerges,
I am interested in tapping into the unseen, un-namable,
the space between where I begin and you end,
the space between where we temporally exist in fleshed-breathing-bodies and the edges of atmospheric infinity,
a yoga-nidra of sorts,
between wake and sleep,
between objectness and experience,
it has its place in Art.
Lygia Clark, was going somewhere, with her “psycho-social” ☾ relational objects.
I am going further,
Deep into the wilds
and back again,
first to the world’s oldest-known color, pigments of bright pink,
the “brightest pink molecules representing the earliest colored molecules in the geological record, about 1.1 billion years old.” ☽
Operating in the business of where stardust lands, immanence,
I invite you to join me in a new and visionary relationship with the mundane, material world,
A relationship that allows us to fully Sense
in new and exciting ways,
the capacity of
l o v e & PINK.
