I have recently found myself developing characters and stories in my work. They seem to want to develop like the journey of a protagonist on stage. Sometimes I begin a painting on a certain track only to discover, through a dialog with the piece, that it wants to evolve into something else. It could be an expansion of the original theme or a complete departure. The painting is only ready for presentation when we are both in agreement.
Whether it’s though the visual or performing arts, what I put forth shall ultimately be the result of reflection, exploration, effort and discovery.
