I believe that “artists” today have a responsibility to influence society for the better.
Whether it be through pretty pictures that allow for a moments escape, or a more dynamic experience designed to challenge the viewer’s established paradigm, artists should always consider themselves architects of our cultural future.
To take up this mantle requires not just a technical proficiency with an artist’s chosen medium, but a willingness to sit and listen to the underlying truth within the stories we tell.
My new body of work is my first true attempt at living up to these lofty ideals. It opens this Friday 5pm-8pm, April 3rd, at Kreuser Gallery in Colorado Springs.
