It seems that if I make a claim, I must, within the same breath, counter that claim. I think that I must play devil's advocate at all times; both with other's claims and, especially, my own. I think this might be a useful way to learn.

These are digitally erased paintings. I make many paintings and when I feel hubris creeping up, I erase my intentions and make a focused attempt at conscious freedom through indifference. This is a process meant to analyze the value of convictions.
