I prefer to allow individual interpretation, and not to explain exactly why I created specific work. I like people to see what they want and apply their own ideas, themes and observations.
Recently I’ve been exploring new themes and listening to artists like Wu-Tang, Nas, Jack White, Neil Young and old Blues artists like Chuck Berry. Their music often has underlying themes such as social consciousness and complex politics. This led me to discover contemporary war art. I find war art is incredible, it documents a part of history often forgotten and can convey a message words cannot. WWI started in 1914—a hundred years ago. Many say the war in the East will last one hundred more, we should contemplate the idealistic opinion of peace.
I completed one of my largest works on gallery canvas. I have worked larger but on walls or billboards in the past. Daisy (A Hundred Years), was made using Acrylic paint, inks and paper on 66” X 77 wood panel.
