Title: Just A Shell
About Me: I am not an "Outsider" or Self Taught" artist. I am formally educated in the fine arts though I chose to reject my education. I am basically egalitarian at heart . My works evolve, move upward as spirit- as all things that evolve and spiritually move toward completeness and peace.
Previously represented by Agora Gallery, New York, NY
I Thank You For Your Visit!
am NOT a "self taught" artist or "outsider" artist. To label myself is to confine my creativity. I did attend a four year university art program, but I became increasingly disillusioned with "high art" education and eventually resolved myself to the philosophy: Creativity is an objective truth that cannot be taught, and art education may instill false notions within an individual, serving only to stifle creativity. Building a formal art education actually destroys the individual growth experience and preaches trendy capitalistic ideals which change much like fashion. In essence, it reduces art to a mere marketable product.
