SOMETIMES (an artist statement)
- Sometimes, plants are involved.
- Sometimes, a space sits empty.
- Sometimes, a vision grows in the head.
- Sometimes, I work with plants.
- Sometimes, light is involved.
- Sometimes, it’s natural.
- Sometimes, artificial.
- Sometimes, as in a majority of the time, these plants are bound by fabric.
- Sometimes, as in fifty percent of the time, plants are grouped together with chairs and tables and called “sculptures.”
- Sometimes, as in a quarter of the time, they are scanned with devices to rebuild their physical presence digitally.
- Sometimes, as in ten percent of the time, I photograph them.
- Sometimes, as in none of the time, and all of the time simultaneously, I just look at them, and absorb their presence.
- Sometimes, it is a meditative practice.
- Sometimes, it is a spiritual journey.
- Sometimes, as in all the time, this is my art.
