Artist Statement

 www.bboonie.tumblr.com

True Magic is what you experience when you look at a stranger for the first time and it is what you feel when you awake fresh from a dream. That experience here which is expressed as a basic understanding of what you feel is true. In these short-lived uncertain moments of True Magic; the world as we know it, is primary in color and basic in shape. The truth of who we are and what we think of each other is a projection and reality becomes only what is remembered. Our memories and with them all expectations, emotionally come rushing forward at full speed shaping everything seen in bursts of color and exaggerated form. These shapes and colors remind us of our basic understanding of our experience. True Magic can turn a lover into a tree because he is remembered as strong and silent with hues of red and brown, and it can turn parents into two golden suns atop a mountain because they have been a source of constant energy when we needed them the most.

Our world, our reality, our color, all of what we are, is transformed in memory.
