What Painting Does For Me

painting with body parts, Uncategorized

It turns me on.

It makes me want to make a bigger mess.

It allows me to transfer and clear stuck energy.

It focuses my attention.

It lets me BE in the moment.

It is a sensual, sexual, spiritual, emotional, creative and energetic outlet.

It is not about skill or talent or “being an artist”; I am not an artist, I am not anything, really. It is an outlet that connects me to my inner child and situates me in my skin, in a timeless moment, and just lets me be myself, even for a little bit, before I exit my self-made bubble and head back into the world where I have to put my various masks back on… for the time being at least.

It is escape and destination.

It is both alien soil…

And home.
