I like drawing faces, and I’m preoccupied with symmetry- as a way to bring order to what often feels like chaos. When I try to recapture that sense of reflection in words, it puts me in danger of being in a metaphorical funhouse of mirrors, where one meaning bounces off another, until infinity. Specifically, I take old drawing and painting pieces, and like a patchwork quilt, cut out the usable bits to help make something new. In a digital context, that means that I end up with several reuses for one old piece- a call to recycling of art and ideas, as a self-regenerating source of inspiration.
I take great pride in my art cricism and how it intersects with social justice. Also, I'm branching out into new artistic styles and mediums, along with a partnership with photographer David Allen Harris. Please go to www.instagram.com/elpeanote for up-to-date accounts of my work. .
