Joshua Healey Lapena ART Habens If there is curiosity triggered from viewing the work, I hope it has encouraged more than just some personal satisfaction. Externally its relation to the thoughts of the viewer is what counts as knowledge. At the same time, it might also be unaccomplished, as many doors are left open to speculative judgments’. It’s important, for the work to have a narrative that is separate from other forms of language while the symbolism can have a shared meaning. This makes it essential that I participate in others experience of the art; in my studio as well as in any exhibition to learn what they think about it. The pressure to produce a lot of work is daunting, as each painting may take anywhere between 1 to 4 months to finish. Precisely because the subjects I refer aren’t understood by many, I think the traditional use of oils on rectangular canvases has still not been exhausted. There is no finality to the visual relation of time to gravity, as their oppositions belongs to a dialectic. There is no way I can know for certain how my work will evolve. In part I presume it depends on how successful I become. Obviously with more money I can dedicate more time to the work and the research to develop its concepts.
