More is not less, less is more

(“Simplicity means the achievement of maximum effects using minimum means.” -Koichi Kawana)

Ferrari : Aerosol Paint on Canvas, 2010

We live in a world ruled by information. Much of our lives are involved with the consumption of information. We read the newspaper in the morning. We sit in meetings at work. We check our e-mails every hour. We read billboards on the highway while driving home. We watch the news on television. We surf the internet and check blogs. Our minds become so full of information that the words become noise. We feel tired from the constant demand on our attention; at work, at home, on weekends. More is not less. Less is more. Clarity is more.

Personally, when I am struck with a lot of information, my mind shuts off and I move on to the next thing. To be heard and understood, it is vital to keep things simple. In the field of visual arts, I attempt to absorb the visual information and reduce their complexity to produce a simpler image with feather information. I believe, in order to see something, it is enough to see their true essence to gain the true information.
