“SLABTOWN GOLD”

 

CESAR A. EVANS
“SLABTOWN GOLD”

We filter through life at different paces
We never quite know what will be found
around the corner

I never intended on moving to Portland.
I never thought I’d graduate Le Cordon Bleu
I never envisioned sleeping out in the rain ;
abandoned office buildings,
wet cement, & outdoortunnels & overhangs

The art forms I contrive today
are a product of refusing to die;
Not just that of a physical death – quite
literally, as in suicide
or catastrophe – but that of the soul, the mind, & the heart

The gestural natural of my marks
connotes the haste of life at times
and the speed of which it passes.

The materials are all found;
that which was discarded
abandoned or had the hope
flushed out of them…
& then returned.
Restored. Healed. In a sense, re-born

When we forgive & choose to live forward
We are doing ourselves the best service:

Freedom
Chance
Opportunity
&maybe a shot at peace.
