THE ARTIST’S STATEMENT
i am a mechanism
yet there is a thing,
it persists to flow and pour out…
it reminds me of truth,
it tells me that I am. love.
that i am hate, peace and certainly war.
all of the above.
are a few of what can’t be explained.
thus i must be diligent,
be aware of myself,
and the other.
my capability to be.
be powered, and power-full.
…that I am able to give as well as receive, life.
…that there is no such thing as death,
rather death is, metanoia.
transferred into newness and so forth…
vessels, battleships for politics and religion.
tankers of spirits, dreams,
of futuristic places that are so near, they are here.
so that tension persists and pendulums swing.
in the name of autonomy the battle continues.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey”][vc_column_text]
