I woke up today I thanked ART for being alive. I am excited about what today brings. I am reading art articles about post-digital which I find fascinating. I think about my Microsoft painting and wonder if the painting sill be understood in it's context finally. Being an artist means it is very easy to get seduced by the wealth and have negative feelings. I have learned not to compare myself with others and that the best art comes from difficult times. it is for art that i carry on. it is for art that the world must be made new.
I have just visited an art show called "The Other Side Of The Alamo". Which was an art show with an oppositional view of the Alamo. Full of Latin artists the show had great works of art. I also went and visited a catholic church that was right next door and absorbed the great paintings and sculptures. It was easy to see the religious aesthetics that translated from the latin catholic church to Mexican american art. Both places were filled with great paintings and sculptures.
I still felt a bit uneasy about all the subject matter. I believe that my art is work that explores themes that trancend identity. I want to go beyond my physical person. Art that focuses on politics, narrative, race, class and power have a small perspective. Although I believe that this work is valid and absolutely has the right to exist. I want art that brings people together. I want art that explores the world at large. I need art to communicate to the other side of the world instead of friends, families and fans. I believe art inspired by the digital age can achieve these goals.
