Senior Exhibition 2004 Andrew Watson
      I intend to make art that primarily reflects itself. It is an internal world of abstract, sometimes semi-abstract elements. The feeling within my work can be beautiful, horrific, contemplative, or irrational. All of these elements may be present at once or perhaps not at all and, like any novel experience, many combinations may emerge. The energy involved in making each piece is preserved and available to the viewer.

      If art is true to itself, it cannot lie about the world around it. In this way, my art speaks about the things with which it coexists. There is a sense of the everyday triumphs and tragedies that occur constantly in the human experience, whether or not anyone is there to record them.

      My work and I share a symbiotic relationship. We are growing together, each gaining strength from the other. Sometimes I speak for it and sometimes it for me, but more and more, we are communicating independently.
