Only a child has the ability to create a new and exciting world out of a single object. The combination of an incorrupt point of view, strong imagination, overflowing curiosity, and the desire to push boundaries make for a very special environment exclusive to the child and their playmates. This is the way we all perceived life once.
In the grownup world, our formerly infinite imagination is restrained by arrangements and circumstances. People often have to live among others with different viewpoints and ways of expressing themselves. As we grow up, society puts limits on the way an individual might perceive things. Being an artist, I am lucky to take the position of a “creator”, but I still feel the pressures of the adult life, imposing boundary after boundary. I seek a sort of regression to a childlike state of mind so that I can create in a place beyond these boundaries. More recently, I use this theme while addressing the instinctive, darker emotions that dwell within people of all ages.
