Painting is immently subjective, an image
collector and changer; the currency is
action rather than reaction. The mistakes
are inherent only to the craetor, and
the depth of emotional outlay is controlled
by the perceptions.
As an action-taker, the painter risks misunderstanding
his gestures, and relies on his instincts.
In a culture bombarded with information
and spoon fed visual imagery from birth from
a passive media, a canvas can be a discovery
for the instinctive and subconscious murmurings
of the inner soul.
