Huxley's Dream: clay board panel, acrylic paint and gold leaf, varnish, 6"x 12"x 2.25. 2/2017. I was reading "The Doors of Perception " by Aldous Huxley during the painting of this work. One does not need to be under the influence of mind altering substances to understand the malleability of reality and how we consistently change our perception of the now to assess and comprehend our present. My art de-focuses focal point in order to challenge the viewers perception of what they are looking at. My paintings are meant to "visually change" as moods, sounds and environment change. The work is not so much about the image, but more about the perception of the viewer. My goal is to get the viewer to actually "see" themselves think.
