About The Series:

Pixels is a series that strives to analyze the importance of the individual substances that give a subject their form. Dots of multiple sizes, shapes, textures and imperfections are either strewed or delicately placed upon a canvas. Backgrounds can range from Abstract Expressionistic planes to clean Art Deco like borders and lines.

The world around us is perceived through our eyes in dots. These dots come together to form the images that we see. We see this represented in our technology through visual medium. Cameras and Televisions, for example, capture and transmit fully formed images through these tiny pixels. Each dot is a being, a soul that populates the world of this image. The dots come together and create a total divinity that seems greater than the sum of its parts. However, every tiny pixel is a necessity for the image to be seen in its entirety Remove one and you will lose the full vibrancy of the image, memory, emotion, purpose.

We are an identity that is the sum of our pixels. This series serves to appreciate every single dot that makes us who we are.

About The Painting:

Bukowski wrote:

“If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”

Life is struggle. There will be obstacles that lay before us. Obstacles from within and without. Conquering those obstacles raises us to the level of the celestial. Having the courage to start that journey is what separates men from gods.
