Wonderful piece. It reminds me of a quote from Fernando Pessoa.
"We never know self-realization. We are two abysses--a well staring at the sky."
Lately I've been trying to discover why I decided to "become" an artist in the first place. My only answer had something to do with a compulsion to be good at something, until I discovered your paintings. Now there are a lot of people out there who dig deep into their minds (or maybe their creativity just boils up closer to the surface) and come up beautiful, provocative paintings, but by chance, yours have hit me at just the right wavelength. I especially love this piece, and I'm reminded what is so wonderful about art. The puzzles you create--the conversations between the hemispheres of the brain--are delightful. And sometimes nauseating. And I think that's great.
