One has to wonder what goes through the mind of an artist as his creation comes from perception. Does it start with a concept, a thought, or a belief? Maybe that is all absent. What about a clear mind and an uninhibited attitude? Whatever it is, it’s the artist’s right. Along the way there must be hiccups and roadblocks, for this is “Life”. The way the artist sees past all that, keeping the focus on the result, is what forms and strengthens an artist. Adapt and overcome! Starting with one of earth’s most primitive materials: roots. Finishing in a physical form of what is the artist’s ideals, imagination, and truth. To me, it is truly extraordinary.
