Concepts of Primitive Art in this an Age of Artificial Reproduction (American Gothic Primitive)
The mind creates, chaos reproduces, and complexity translates. In the present material reality, art objects are resurrections of the imaginations of the primitive mind -- a timeless frame that contains chaos as an organism to represent ideas, patterns, complexity and emotions. The evolution of the "modern" technological environment falsely implies, as always, that the primitive mind is approaching a point where we will be free of static and chaos to transcend immersions into the parameters of a more genuine reality.
Primitive Art in an Age of Artificial Reproduction emphasizes the artificial nature of digital media, using traditional medium (polychromed relief woodcarving). I explore abstract and traditional scenery with exceptional subjects as motifs to describe the idea of our relationship to the cyber-intuitive reality.
My art is a matrix of illusion and disillusion, intuitive primitive force and memories of repressed, forgotten, extraordinary subjects. These components merge to convey provocative themes of classic drama and heroic efforts that often equally attract and disgust.
