Illustrated in these works are everyday life situations that have been examined, filtered, dissected and reassembled, often like a collage, with the intention of capturing the mood of the situation, or the feelings that the people are experiencing.
The subject matter often comes directly from the artists' life and is a comment on human nature and how we deal with everyday issues, examining the notion of what it is to be human.
The work is emotionally driven. Just to feel something that another human being is experiencing is the most important thing.
“a man who can beat the horses can do almost anything he makes up his mind to do. He doesn’t belong at the racetrack. He should be on the Left Bank with his mother easel or in the East Village writing an avant-garde symphony. Or making some woman happy. Or living in a cave in the hills.”
- Charles Bukowski
