It’s funny how the Radicals of today become the Heroes of tomorrow. -Don’t believe the hype

To bring together a group of remarkable people,
To see if we could become something more.”

I’m called to It. It’s not very happy. The It that folks typically ignore. It’s hard. I’m very tired, but It keeps me up. Honestly I wish I could move like that, I want that, But It seems that, That ain’t It.
So I hope you get the why, not the I, or that you wanna get the It. I’m proud of It.
It is greater than I, I hope you can carry It after I.
Well, rest comes soon I think, but the work keeps you awake I hope. It sacrifices the me to elevate the we, I hope at least that you’ve seen me.

There’s a way in which artist have the power to summon the symbolic, to move in the world in a way that others couldn’t imagine. To breath life into an object and let that object have a life of its own. Meeting another artist just puts me closer to God. That’s why I guess the gallery feels like church.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.”
-Churchill
Wherever you are on your journey, disappointment, success, restructuring, failure. I want you to know, the world needs you, your scars lend to your beauty. Your failures will bloom into someone’s hope.
I live in that hope. Let’s plant seeds together. Much love for you this week! 📸- @jordanandtylermarie

Conversed with the epitome of mastery himself, @kerryjamesmarsh
I don’t get star struck to often, but this man is my hero. I’m super grateful for these affirmations of my journey, and I’m excited to see our works in the same museum in the future.
