THE LONGEST DISTANCE
My commute is about getting from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. However, the daily routine of commuting to and from work over time turns into visual white noise. The repetition of treading the same landscape loses its clarity as trees melt into a green blur.
What if I changed the goal of the trip? What if I focused on the journey and ignored the destination? Suddenly, objects, foliage, landmarks, previously ignored take on greater meaning and hold my interest longer. Attempting to answer these questions generated new questions and subsequently new artwork, ultimately leading to the work for this exhibition titled, The Longest Distance.
