your profession is not what brings home the weekly paycheck,

your profession is what you're put here on earth to do with such passion & such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.

What is art? Is it an object you create? or is it a concept?? If it has to be something that is created where does that leave conceptual art? And if a concept can be art then are you an artist if you just sit there & dream of great art? And if that's the case are we all artists?

this is one of the last pieces i made.. it's called Superstar.

With this piece i was trying to mix pop from the 60's & pop from today.. the name refers to Andy Warhols "superstars" this was a term he used to describe the cool people around him. The piece has a small mirror behind the lens, so you can see yourself in it.. in a way implying that you too can be a superstar.

Also the piece has elements that were inspired by Tom Sachs, Takashi Murakami & my trip to Rome in 2007.. the Vatican has lots of things in shiny gold & glass boxes.. it makes the most inanimate object look & feel important.
