“Two paths diverged in a wood . . . “
Have you heard that quote? When I hear it, I always think that I wandered off into the brush instead. Initially that seemed like a problem. I felt like I got lost somewhere, but I’m starting to think this is where I’m supposed to be.
Seeking Outside is a site about finding our way back to ourselves. Art is the vehicle and we’ll define it broadly as, “anything you make.”
The broad definition means that almost anything we do is art. However, there’s a big difference between the art you make and the art you want to make. Finding and and giving yourself permission to make the art you want to make is harder than it sounds. Maybe that’s just me, but probably not.
I first gave myself permission to make the art I want to make sometime in 2017. However, it wasn’t like turning on a switch. It was more like allowing myself to begin a process. Taking that step caused me to realize that making the art we want is about the pursuit of our true nature.
That’s really what all of this is about. Finding our way back to ourselves.
My name is Dan and I make abstract art that is nature inspired, geometric, and (sometimes) informed by a generative process. I live in Tampa, Florida.
