ARTISTS STATEMENT

This series of works details the curse of our current over-stimulated culture. The work acts as a visual representation of the struggle to be present while in a constant search for distraction. Here, imagery battles for your attention, as the flat colors comment on levels of clear and present focus. The representational imagery acts as a conduit for more stimulating spaces the mind would rather be. I describe these spaces by using symbols of common distractions; articles that populate that back of your head: goals, shopping, power, fear, travel, beauty, and human interactions. These themes are exciting, and our collective culture put a premium on their obtainment, causing a daydream effect. We find ourselves perpetually looking to the future or to the past while skipping looking at life in real time. Pondering the idea of living in the present moment, letting a moment to be what it is, and examining how hard that is to do in our current culture. These works chronicle and examine this struggle.

HISTORY

Located at 1300 Gendy Street, Arts Fort Worth is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. Now known as Arts Fort Worth, the building continues to exhibit world class art and support the performing arts for more than half a century.
