thoughts on the train
If it were possible to ‘try on’ ego death, what do you imagine would be possible? What could you imagine being capable of? Or no longer bound to? Obviously, it is a bit of a paradoxical thought experiment, but it’s the best way I can invite you into this mindset, even if just temporarily. Take… Continue reading Mirrors
21.02.2020 When I was a kid, I lived near a tree farm. I liked to walk around after it had rained and feel the sticks and small pebbles underneath my bare kid-feet in the mud.

Camus told us that the universe is indifferent. I never really knew what to think of that until I became an artist.

I didn’t have time for it throughout the rest of my degree. But after graduating, and failing to find a job, I… Continue reading I Could Have Painted That

What do you do when you’re done painting and want to clean your brushes? Do you wash your brushes under a running faucet? Do you ever think about where the chemicals from your paint end up?
