Image Above: Detail of "Watching the Comet" by Ving Simpson
Ving Simpson's intent in creating art is to unfold the inherent nature of something an idea, a rule, a notion, a person, or a thing-and uncover an artistic understanding of the essence of its existence. He uses his artistic process to edify himself, using what he considers an alternate channel of perception to circumvent the folded (Cartesian, analytic, logical, linguistic) approach to knowledge. Though difficult to describe the process in words, Ving has discovered that a number of topics have yielded to this process. The idea of numbers deepens. The quality of warriors clarifies. The enigma of space and time unravels and the universe drops some of its inscrutability.
Ving uses this artistic frame of mind, where form and color, material and method, join with unfolded intent to infiltrate the big questions of life in this big universe of ours. The artwork is what is left over.
