I recently noticed a substantial difference between the Artist and the Hobbyist.
Both indeed do in their own right; the Artist does things and the Hobbyist does things.

However it seems as though the Artist does things while persistently digging for a why to what it is they're doing. Whereas, the Hobbyist seems to do, without codependency to a determinable why.

Currently... I don't know my why.
Therefore, I will continue doing, as I wait for my why to reveal itself.

I’ve been gifted with two able hands haven’t I?
Well then for Godssake I’m gonna use them.

Although the works could be verbally expanded upon [individually], the conceptual threads that connect the individual works don’t require elaborate explanation. Structure, materiality, solidarity, utility, and subtlety squeeze their way throughout the works through what I find as simple, warm, and enticing materials. The process of paring down the components of the works not only provides a literal visual, it also creates margins of 'grey-space' for the viewer’s engagement. That’s not to say that the work exists for the viewer specifically, but the viewer is a reality that can’t be ignored.
