The Sand Between My Toes

As figures pass and feelings swell like waves upon the shore...


Much of art tries in vein to express sensory experience.

The qualities of life we feel appear so simply, and yet the moment I attempt to capture even the most straight forward of my collisions with the world, like walking in the sand, I loose all but a glimpse of the subtlety and strength of my encounter.

As I walk I not only feel the soft warmth of countless grains, but you with me.

Art brings together so that I may return. With the title of this work I place myself, ready for my search to be with you in mind, and as I feel, in body.

The 'you' is different from one person to the next.

Art transends the individual experience as it speaks in tongues far distant from my own.
