Artist's Statement

JUVENAL REIS

“One observes in order to see what one would not see if one did not observe.”

Ludwig J. Wittgenstein

Remarks on Color

Life is as beautiful as our ability to interact with the Universe. I play, I eat, I drink and I look and I observe until I see, and the process takes over with whatever I can get my hands on. All is unimportant but the experience and the constant search for equilibrium.  I work in series to give me time to engage, enjoy and explore. Fun, fun, fun, add and delete until I am no longer here and there.

Environmental sound bites and visual noises are always on my radar to hopefully becoming a “thing”, a starting point. The rest of the journey is up to you.
