36x36 Las Vegas, Nevada
Very few times in my life but some I have fallen really hard or hit my head. Within that moment there is almost a silence before the pain starts and a blue light. A blue light that comes from seeing and knowing to suddenly an instant moment of not seeing and not knowing.
Your work on the art you created for my company has allowed me to feel like people know my art and can see my art, thank you.
The canvas is titled ten in twenty-twenty because I feel the both of us have shared the frequency of the knowing and seeing of recovery, yet slowly over a period of time transitioned into the Maya, the illusion, of losing sight and not really knowing why we are here (in the rooms.)
This painting is chaotic. It is ten years clean. A global pandemic taking away everything to us that was normal. The fear. The uncertainty, the chaos. The love, the coming back together as a whole, stronger together. The frequency is in the adapting, it is in the self-reflection and growth that has transpired between us all as we show up, open our mouths, and figure it out together.
Do you know when everyone is talking at once in the zoom room right before we mute? It kind of sounds like this painting looks. In those seconds, the little blue light of the screen, of the mind, of the empathy we all share (on a good day) - something mystical comes together and pushes us each forward in whatever way it needs to for that moment.
Ten years of a moment of silence. A decade together. Thank you for sharing this road with me, and thank you for all of your brilliant work. I love you so much.
Let us go for twenty in twenty-thirty.
