"The mind is the realm of art. It is where every person experiences the fantastic, the beautiful, the terrible, and the divine. My goal is to forget the widely accepted reality, the so called mundane. I turn my focus towards the fantastic. Not necessarily the ideal, but the surreal, the mystical, the super-natural. A return to the primal urges of consciousness.
A work of art is not merely the art object, but the interaction between the object and the viewer. It is in the mind that art exists, as it is in the mind that our world is experienced. Without the observer or creator, an art object is merely its components; paint, paper, pixel, metal, stone, or clay. The human psyche gives substance to the source materials." --Cody Blain Jones, Denver, Colorado.
