What is Know No Truth?
"Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed"- William Blake
Presented before you is the inseparable line between my life and my art. With everything herein, the philosophy I ask the viewer to adopt is one of accepting no conclusion, looking deeper, and seeing what can be found from each piece of art within this website. It is the essence of what "Know No Truth" means. No matter how hard you look, there is always more detail, and accepting something as a final truth very often kills that exploration.
Although some of my work may seem dark, I ask the viewers to look beyond the superficial first impressions, past what may seem morbid, and see what they find. The aim with my work is not to embrace darkness, but light through confrontational courage, and a healthy dose of black humor. I believe the light is at the end of the tunnel, not the beginning. At times the tunnel is pitch black, a desired path may be difficult, ingrained perceptions make you believe you can never be the person you want to be, but we overcome these things.
Rethink. Reevaluate. Realize. Know No Truth.
