Lamentation is the act of despair that is a result of knowing it will never happen. It is over. It is out. All I can do is show up. I will never get it right. That is OK. It is alright because the act is perfection. I am in me and outside me, I am simultaneous to everything. I am perfect, perfectly happy, as I make Art. And yes, Art requires capitalization,
Acceptance is the key to removing lamentation from my living. The two works I show today feel alien, but they are me. Alien and me is nothing new for me. I cannot get through my life without making Art.
The new painting, "No Living Thing Can Exist Without It", is aptly titled. Dr. Zhivago was a godsend to me in my youth. The idea of the poet/doctor comforts me. I do believe my invention of forms, during my act of making Art, is the key to the longevity of my optimism, my spirt, and my enthusiasm for living.
