A MISSION STATEMENT

 

CONTRAST. LIGHT AND DARK, FAST AND SLOW, RESISTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE.

IN ALL CONTRASTING EXAMPLES THERE IS A SINGULAR MOMENT WHERE OPPOSING SIDES OF AN IDEA MEET. THE PLACE WHERE NEITHER ACTION HAS BEGUN OR ENDED. WHERE ALL THAT EXISTS IS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME EITHER.

STILL, WE CAN HOLD THESE EVENTS EQUALLY, ACKNOWLEDGING THE EXISTENCE OF, AT ONCE, THE BLACK, THE WHITE, AND THE SPECTRUM THEREIN. I PROPOSE THAT THIS NEW VISTA BRINGS ELEGANCE TO OTHERWISE DIVIDING EVENTS.

I HAVE SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF MY CAREER CREATING LOUD, EYE-POPPING, ATTENTION GRABBING CONTENT FOR THE SPACE IN WHICH ART EXISTS OUTSIDE OF THE GALLERY. IT HAS BEEN NECESSARY. THE TIMES WE LIVE IN SUGGESTS THAT THE LOUDEST VOICE WINS. YEARS OF SUCCESS IN THE ARENA OF LOUD HAS LEAD ME TO THIS STUDY, RESULTING IN AN ATTRACTION TO AN ALTERNATE METHOD OF COMMUNICATION.

DUÆL.

 A QUIET SHAPE, AND THE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES THAT ARE DISPLAYED BY TWO OPPOSING COLORS ADVANCING TO, OR FROM, A STARTING POINT TO CREATE FORM OUT OF CONTRAST ALONE.


THIS CONCEPT NATURALLY BELONGS IN A CONTEMPLATIVE SETTING. MANY OF US ARE NOW STARVED FOR CONTENT THAT ALLUDES TO MULTI-LAYERED ENGAGEMENT. THESE WORKS SUGGEST THAT THE AUDIENCE SURRENDER IN ORDER TO DIGEST WHAT IS HELD WITHIN ITS FRAME; A DISTILLED SENSE OF PRESENCE.
