Opening night sits on the horizon, with thirty-six moons to come. October 5th, 2018
I heard once that an individual has reached mastery of a skill after ten thousand hours of practice. I know I spend many nights at a time doling punishment in online games, but what of my art?
I spent a large part of the past year off social media to reach this understanding in my work. It may strike one as odd, to take a passion to such lengths, but in turn, I am stunned by the efforts of those dedicated to their work. More than a duty, to share bustling cityscapes or attractive portraiture, love for the opportunity to create and taste new experiences drives me. The world is a big place. I welcome seeing more of it.
As this journey to create captivating imagery continues, I hope that this undertaking – my solo exhibition on campus – carries the weight of the vision I behold.
