“No Rest For The Wicked”
A solo exhibition featuring new works by REASON.
December 27th 2014.
And now a few words from Reason:
“This is an artists statement in regards to ‘No Rest For The Wicked’. It contains (or should contain) pertinent information in relation to such things as concepts, theories, themes, meanings, usage of mediums, inspiration, subject choices, credentials and all that other art school crap. In a society where the average attention span of a human being is 8 seconds, why bother?
It’s acceptable and just fine to not fully understand something or not enjoy something. Really. What is not acceptable is to be told why you should or should not understand or enjoy something. In this case the art. There is no hidden meaning or layered social subtext within this body of work. Sorry. The inspiration for ‘No Rest For The Wicked’ was and always will be the end goal of simply attempting to leave something behind after I’m gone that is aesthetically pleasing (aka dope).
Less is more, simple is complex. Maybe. Either way they’re just stencils not statements.
Why stencils? Because I was never really good at graffiti.”
