"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one."
- Robert Greene
I need an artist's statement, but I hate writing them.
At art school, I played more than studied. What I mean is that like most I had an idea of what kind of degree I wanted but I got lost along the way and realized I was misguided. So I started taking random courses in random new disciplines. I took some jewellery, pottery, painting, fashion, printmaking -- you get the idea. I played.
This allowed me to rediscover my outputs with my art.
I did find a focus to finish with; photography and design majors with art history and media art minors. I learned something by allowing myself to play, ...
I learned that the discovery of new skills leads to finding new ways to solve problems and create unique solutions.
My artistic goal moving forward is simple, make shit every day and try new things as often as possible. I need to create. Being disciplined in the act of making will inevitably result in having done shit. I live for the journey. Outputs and destinations are simply a result of the journey taken.
