In Dreams We Enter A World Entirely Our Own

  • January 08, 2019

This piece was actually created back in 2017 as an exploration after an online plaster and wax class I took. It sat waiting for my new studio to be functional before it was fully finished. The colour palette was close to a series I was working on. As my inner monkeys mulled around the notion of what we show to the world vs what is hidden, I came across Dumbledore's quote:
"For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud."
and I realized it had to be part of the "What Has Been Carefully Hidden series.

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.
