The things I try to make unique
are just modified reproductions of what
I've seen. I think I'm done. Or else
I've got to find something so untracable, the closest
anyone will ever get to it is through me.

Art has a few kinds of apeal.

Idealized realistic depictions.
Abstract. Something not readily identifiable.
Realism. Kareoke. Not staged. Pushes limits of common sensability.

Then there are creations. Taking all three apeals and managing to avoid duplicity and acheiving truth by being unsensable, unrecognizable, and completely realistic, and remaining untraceable. And this has the be the goal of the artist.

This may be the ultimate vanity. The ultimate desire to be unatainable.
