Lou Portsmouth - I have been keeping journals and making artworks since I was a very young child. At some point these two outlets for personal catharsis, immature and indiscriminate grumblings, and “analytical distance” merged together to become a mash-up of media and meditation, mapped in non-linear fashion onto the pages of folio-sized hardbound sketchbooks. The pages were shaped by clippings and scrawled doodling in pencil and ink, paint and magic markers swirled with reckless abandon, all with little reverence for - but keen attention to - the information barrage coming from external stimuli: friends, family, teachers, and the surrounding environment. As time went by, and lessons (both soft & hard) were learned, the thickening layers of the sketchbooks began to form a personal and distinct syntax and running narrative; I realized that I was in possession of a certain & deliberate apparatus for not only the marking of time, but also for the synthesis and synchronization of disparate and altogether non-sequential moments and occasions. Such a device has been an invaluable tool in my life, and I am ever searching for ways to transform it, to allow it to evolve. Second Life might just be the next major step, and the possibilities amaze me!
We greatly look forward to seeing you all there!
