Portfolio Review: JK5 Talks New Work, Inspiration and Process

 

And I Will Expand Your Conscious Heart, Threemorrow series, 2011
"In essence this is some galaxy sized alien god spirit, kind-of protecting and grabbing this newborns head. If you look close, all of the stripes and crazy energy radiating from the eyes are letter form, alphabets, pencils and things. Really encrypted inside is that brainshark, symbolizing the initial danger with our daughter. If you treat your own life experience as a dream, illustrating it as the narrative, you get new elements to tell the story. All of this light force and positive energy was for that fact that she got better." 

 


The Bestest Days Of Ever, 2011
"This is the first painting I did as a father, right after we came home and everything was all good (with my daughter). Something my wife said while we were changing diapers, she said 'Honey, these are the bestest days of ever.' It was just this rad declaration. Not grammatically correct, but rad. I basically did a drawing of it lefty because my baby was always hanging out in my right arm. It was super crude and raw. The plan was to keep this and make a refined painting from it."
