ego fight

Words we dare not speak

Thoughts: When this work was created I had no idea what was comming into being. The title came to me immediatlly afterward. There is some refrence, I think, in my subconcious to a phrase indicating something that is considered socially immoral.

Upon reflection o f the title I begin to wonder what words are those that we dare not speak. And, are they words of a specific instance or words in general? And, why would we `dare not' speak them - could the words hold some power that frightens us or our sensability?

It seems as though there is a hidden meaning in the title. It is not a simple - this is a chair - corelation with an image of a chair and words that describe the image. The title and the picture do though, seem to be related- and both offer some inkling that there is a message- and that message has it's essence not in the picture nor in the words - but outside of thier context.

the bull-man takes another victim

Self portrait with a tractor
Private collection of Dr. Dan Berger

A smaller pencil drawing. The title is ambiguous, I think, because it doesn't really tell you of the so called self portrait is the picture of the boy- or is the picture on the easily the work of the boy, who has created his own self portrait -substituting a self image with an image of a pitch fork and a shovel.

psychological memory :


Paul Klee spoke of a moment in the art of painting when free inspiration of the artist must yield to the demands of the thing coming into being. He described it as the moment in which a painting acquired a face. "Now it looks at me," he would declare.

Shiva on my shoulder
Pastel on board

"By silencing our mind, we can feel our true self emerge and experience our interconnectedness with all of existence. As our heart opens and our mind focuses on Eternity, the trials and tribulations of life diminish."
