Some words from the Artist:
Drawing inspiration from the earth and our natural environment, my work has been influenced by all aspects of this multifaceted life. From the academic disciplines of mathematics, science, and philosophy to the fantastical whimsy of the imagination, my work has been informed by my life’s journey and my heart’s intuition.
I find myself using art as a means of intimately reconnecting with my most transcendental experiences and relating them to others. Recently I have been using art as a means of expressing deeply personal experiences that I cannot convey in words alone. I have found incredible joy in trying to take the purely experiential or conceptual and re-writing it into a new visual vernacular.
Mine is just one perspective out of the vast ocean of humanity’s infinite potential. ~Drake Arnold
