in flight: views from the studio

I was looking at pictures of the mars rover today and thinking about exploration. The lone rover seeing and experiencing this fascinating planet- with the objective of seeing and reporting. I was reminded of how we as artists see and report on life, filtered through our own unique lens. Often out there at the front experiencing and thinking deeply about this world and experience we are having.

The curiosity which drives us to seek new places or new experiences is a compelling force that propels us into new territory. At once scary and thrilling, often at the edges of comfort level.

As I rework and add to my visual language, I try to let the work evolve from itself through the process of working while continually forcing myself to ride the edge of the uncomfortable zone. Sometimes it works and well, sometimes I just try.
