I like art where the art falls away as you look, and you feel an eternal human experience. Past, future and present seem to be one to me, ‘in the electric garden of our minds’ (J G Ballard).
It is what we have in common that interests me. The constants. The stories, the songs. The experiences we have and share are not new but they are unique to every one of us. The art of the past shows us this.
I think art has a votive function. Van Gogh’s ‘Little Blossom Tree’ comes to mind as an offering to the subject as well as the viewer, a defiant act against time and fate.
The track I am on is contained somewhere in these notions.
