By happenstance I explore the possibility of seeing intricate parts of the world in a larger way. I am able to appreciate an observation without having the entirety of the moment distract me.
My vision is ever changing, the details at times tangible realities and at other random color against space. The viewer should view my imagery with out my prejudice. The eye that looks upon it, owns the suggestion, representation, and interpretation. That very thought makes my art meaningful.
It is what it is…or not. -SD
