Carving Out My Own Path
Acrylic ink on paper, 14x11
AVAILABLE ON REQUEST $300
I have found that in order to find happiness, I can’t follow anyone. I have to carve out my own path no matter how hard it is. I am satisfied and feel accomplished when I do things on my own. It is the only way to truly grow and discover what one is made of. This work keeps that reminder present because it’s not always easy. Sometimes it is tempting to just follow.
NOTE: Throughout the work, you will find one's and zeroes and groups of many different symbols. The binary code(ones and zeroes) is the base language for all computers which make all technology possible. I incorporate the binary code to remind us how computers are penetrating every nook of life. I actually spell words that have been translated from our alphabet to binary code. The clutter of symbols parallel mnemonics with amnesia. An idea inspired by a universal feeling of information overload oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
