Here is this other person with a whole background, life, and years of experiences completely separate of yours. No matter how much time you spend with her, you can never know her whole story and she can never know yours. You just hope that she can apply what she does know to guess at how your lived experience informs your everyday. Most of the time you bumble around unaware of the individuality of everyone around you but when you finally feel like you connect with someone and are experiencing a sense of oneness, you have moments of, “Whoa. You are a completely different person.” It’s crazy. You’re crazy. To expect someone other than yourself to “get” you is a few inches short of sane. And as someone who feels constantly misunderstood, this is your ultimate life goal — to find someone who can make sense of you when it’s been such a journey to make sense of yourself.

His characters seem to visualize a surreal, parallel world filled with surprise and enigma.

”When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath. With paper cutting there are so many opportunities to create negative space that tells its own story. Letting the observer become present in the piece allows him or her to look through it. I like the idea of the stark contrast between the black and white paper, and the cut nature of the work makes my art more three-dimensional than paint on canvas. ”
Webster informs me that a cup is a small, bowl-shaped container for drinking, typically having a handle… but I believe that it is more than that one demintional answer. The word “cups” originated from the Latin word “cuppa” meaning the upper part of the head. It also gained its roots from the Germans and Celts as a drinking ritual to honor the dead, otherwise known as a ”skullcap”. The greater message from the form of a cup is the since of camaraderie, the act of sharing one’s drink. Although it has change over the years. For instance when people make a toast, an audible clinking of drinks, or communion in church it represents unity among those involved. What does a cup mean to you?
