Collective energy

Some of my most emotional paintings and drawings have very little and sometimes nothing to do with me. They are expressions of empathy.

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think I am an “empath” or some kind of weird woo woo shit. But I do believe that there is a bit of a collective energy in whatever space you are in.

During the pandemic, I think we all got caught up in a bit of an emotional feedback loop. And it was not overwhelmingly positive.

For me the key to dealing with it was expression. I found ways of burrowing into my mind and channeling whatever I found onto paper. Then end result of that was that I have been as creative in the last year as I have ever been in my life.

The mid range result of that is I created a lot of dark images.

Which brings us to todays work. I saw a lot of people pushed to the breaking point over the last year and that too found its way onto paper…
