artBRIEFS:

Beyond Labels


As my work is continually evolving, I've come to the conclusion that my "style" is to have alot of "styles". The term "Pan Imagery" came to mind to describe this, though deep down I truly believe that all these names and labels are silly and superfluous. For me, they function merely as something to generate dialogue, because it is the dialogue that is "attached" to an object that seems to define it as "ART". In the end, Art itself is the best answer to the question; "What is Art?". There are no permanent answers to this question, only temporary ones. "Maximalism", "Pan Imagery", & "the School of Idaho" - are merely terms of convenience, and with them I'm simply naming a series of work, I'm not founding any movements. It's the surprise of the creative process that is really of interest to me, and I enjoy not knowing what's coming next... though in retrospect, my Art has always seemed to reflect my interests & environment ("if it's on your mind - it's in your art!"), and in some way it commemorates the ideas, insights, events, people, places, or things, that have had meaning for me...
