It would appear very difficult to talk about your own artistic expression. I always thought that by trying to describe my music, my writing and my drawings with words I either diminish its value, or falsely enhance it. With time though, I was able to precisely convey my artistic intentions with words, and the result is written below. Because the art I'm involved with is far from viable, I think that a brief intro. to the artist intent and goal would be, for someone, an essential companion to the listening, reading and viewing experience.
In a money driven society, more often than not, they're making more kind of a traditional viable product, art that is understood by people. And this product is understood. And they become worried if even for one small moment something happens that is not understood by everyone. But what's so fantastic is to get down into areas where things are abstract and where things are felt, or understood in an intuitive way that, you can't, you know, put a microphone to somebody and say 'Did you understand that?' but they come out with a strange, fantastic feeling and they can carry that, and it opens some little door or something that's magical and that's the power that certain art has.  Amazing things can be achieved with the ingredient of abstraction, but it rarely gets a chance. People are treated like idiots, and people are not idiots. We're hip to the human condition, the human experience, and we love mysteries. I keep hoping people will like abstractions, space to dream, consider things that don't necessarily add up. Which brings me to my strongest influence in my espressions: Surrealism!
Among those who do not comprehend surrealism are people who look upon the real as verifiable, as something to be checked against past experience or observation. These individuals fail to see that for the surrealist the dimensions of the real cannot be gauged by reference to the familiar. So far as the real appears to have limits, they are foisted upon it by the mental, emotional, and imaginative limitations of spectators accustomed to measure the possible by the already known. For this reason, surrealism and many of its contemporary opponents remained inevitably in a state of quarrelsome disagreement. The one group insisted on estimating the scope of reality by its possibilities. The other condemned the real to be repetitive of what the past had shown them.
While Abstract is an expression that is disassociated from any specific instance, difficult to understand, having only intrinsic form with little or no attempt to
recall something known, and Surrealism is the practice of producing fantastic and often incongruous effects by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations, there are two more elements that are totally missing, or better yet, have disappeared in most art today:
Poetry, which is the intention of transmitting and spreading the highest quality of the human soul with purity and integrity for the sole purpose of illuminating, and...
Sophistication , the very essence of interpreting a language, by way of using our knowledge, refine it, and then elevate it so much so to bring the listener's awareness to a higher plane.
