This painting, "Slaying the Minutiae", is on display at the Cameron Museum of Art in Wilmington, NC until next summer. This imagery has been a potent jumping off point for much of my recent work and it was a significant point in my career when a bit of intense self-actualization reared itself through the making of this image. Art is a mirror: for the creator while creating, for the viewer when contemplating. You are not looking only at the artists ideas but at your perceptions of those ideas. You can be sure whatever feeling a piece of art brings up in you is a significant subconscious reference to how you relate to the world. What piece of art has increased your consciousness?
