Art is: the opposite of carelessness. This piece could be described as a series of pigment application moving towards cohesion. The horizon is at once distance and boundary. The obvious conclusion is that if you believe the whole painting, then the whole thing is true. The act of imagining a good story is a way to make someone, including oneself, feel safe forever. Gravity can paint a picture, through time and natural processes. Like fear, gravity is a common denominator; it is also a connected to natural phenomena and creation. Decay, cultural and social decay is the same as oversimplification on such a grand scale that the basics of life have become abstract "concepts". Art is a circular idea process of formation and deterioration. Self-organizing matter is the secret.
