Entry Title: "What's Really Going On?"

I have been fascinated by the concept of what's real? It's very hard to define what reality is. Once defined, it immediately becomes a relative construct. What's real for one is not for another. Furthermore, anything put into words remains dependent on memory. What I remember or hold as important from another time, may not be what I believe in today. So what are these beliefs? What are thoughts? Who am I? What is the world? What is the difference between the personal and the universal? If I define what I call universal, then isn't it really personal? These abstractions and deliberations are the theme of my art. I also write a poem for each painting, reflecting the same framework of investigation.
