Why did you pick this picture?
I picked this because it is different from a lot of my other works, and shows a sense of detail that I don’t usually have.
Where did the idea come from?
The idea for this art came from the desire to create a paradoxical narrative, which allows the viewer to have a sense of displacement and also gives them the freedom to create their own relevant story to relate to the work.
What does this mean to you?
This art, to me, has meaning in its ability to push viewers to question the relationships between experiences and varying perspectives.
What can you tell us about yourself?
To tell you about myself, I am a 22 year old from Colorado, where I still reside. I have always had a passion for art, as well as other things that stretch the mind, such as philosophy, history, literature, music, and the outdoors.
What more can you tell you about yourself?
The only other thing I can say about my art is that I don’t really care to be an artist. I have never cared to construct an identity for myself out of making art, or seek my personal value from being an artist. I have never viewed any of my passions that way. Art is simply something that I love to do. It’s a language I communicate through, and oftentimes the most enjoyable way for me to communicate through it is ambiguously, to let people explore their own minds.
