THERE’S NO MYSTERY TO IT.
I wasn’t trying to generate mystery or intrigue. I think people will just appreciate them for their beauty and their uniqueness and they’ll come to some sort of conclusion in their own mind as to what they are. I mean I get that experience when people come into my studio. Most everybody loves them and like I have said before, some people immediately understand that they are a collection of old cultures combined into one. I think I feel some connection to these indigenous cultures because I appreciate, you know, the level of art that they created and the admiration I have for what they did. No schooling, no tools to speak of, all the other things they had to do to survive and they produce this amazing artwork.
