Humanity faces some very serious issues. Essentially my art attempts to engage with the truth about these.
" OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER" Martin Luther King, Jr.
- "Art should comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable" Banksy
-"Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war against brutality & darkness" Pablo Picasso
- "Insuring a vision of the truth the artist best serves his nation...the artist must also sail against the wind of his time, not a popular role" President John F Kennedy.
- "Men occasionally stumble on the truth, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened" Winston Churchill.
" To sin by silence when we should protest, makes cowards of men " Ella Wheeler Wilcox
