A Parallel Life

  • January 30, 2019

It took me quite awhile to figure out what I saw in this photo, something I'd saved from a magazine and stashed in my collage drawer. Date unknown. I kept coming back to that spindly aerial, something from a by-gone era, a time before. Which got me thinking about time in general, parallel lives more specifically and my Muse ran with it.

Maker of Things

I'm still working on this.
The art marketing droids pundits tell me to be amusing but sincere. Short'n'snappy is the goal but please, explain why you're put on this earth to Make Art. I'm sure there will be something about Brain Monkeys. They, after all, are pretty much the reason we ...I... do anything. Unless that's just me. And there's gotta be a bit about living in the back of beyond and why that means Shit To James. Cuz it does. It informs everything. That and being insatiably curious and a Problem Solver. I guess if I hadn't stumbled into art making I'd be an engineer or a quantum physicist. Well. Except I flunked physics. So, I guess I should thank Mr. Watson for my Raison D'Etre.
Or Something.
