I am like Picasso because I love the art movement of Cubism. I love the idea that time and space can be broken up into planes in a picture, the idea that there are different ways of seeing time in fine art. Cubism comes from an interior meditation of what one sees. I like to diverge from realism and imagine landscapes that exist outside of our time and space and live inside a spiritual plane. They talk to me, these images I create from my imagination- the same way the cubists continued to follow a new way of seeing a world not based on direct realism.
I am like Picasso in that I love surrealism. I dream intensely every night and so like surrealist I am influenced by images that break up illogical of sequence. I prefer the chance movement of falling into a picture sometimes, while other times I like to be very planned ahead of time. To fall into a picture without a plan of where it is going next is to surrender to a dream and an interior intuition. This aspect of surrealism and visual art resonates with me.
I am like Picasso in that I love to draw people. I find line drawings of human profiles an obsessive mark I have been making since I was about 7 or younger. I love the human body in all shapes and forms and like Picasso I like to hang out with artists in town who attend live studio drawing classes to gather material and the discipline of seeing.
