‘My incapabilities of happiness’

My incapabilities of happiness which ring true in my artwork are not insights into my life’s experiences or the weight my soul carries. They are instead depictions of the realities I see almost every day in a world of hurt. People tend not to see such realities, and the misery that lies near or under their feet. Instead they walk in a gloomy existence of materialism and happiness set forth from such a capitalistic outlook and they in-turn fail to realize that the world is sad, so very sad. And for us, the human beings, a race of slaves, to walk along side one another, and not use one another for rungs on a ladder, then and only then can we truly have a world free of sadness, a world of happiness so large that everyone experiences their fill. Then and only then would my incapabilities of producing joyful art instead of depictions of misery, which are at this very moment reality, be cured. And so then I ask everyone who may befallen by the traps of today’s society, to look beyond what you know to be true, and question it. For tomorrow’s happiness is based on the actions of today, and the reactions to today’s miseries.
