Mini Wisdom Paintings
A set of paintings with wisdom worth remembering.
Artists + Designer

When something is bothering me there's usually an underlying shift in thinking that can clear it up. It takes time to go down and find it, but it's always worth it. Because next time I have that feeling, I can remember that I dove into the heart of it, and found the shift that shattered the illusion.

I think all the world's wisdom has been discovered through a similar process. It's the same process as design and creativity in general. Diving down to understand your own emotions until you get to an insight is the same skill of mindful focus that is required to dive into a design problem until you make a breakthrough.

Sometimes I memorialize these insights so I don't forget them. These are a series of small paintings that I made when I was using my desk as an art studio during COVID.
