Pierre Botardo - ”The images I create are initial reactions to both lasting and meteoric events. The work, itself, is an observation of the discretion in these events. By permitting myself to indulge analytically and aesthetically in uncensored emotions, it is a form of self expression as well as self acceptance. I find myself drawn to topics rarely discussed in the immediate culture of my upbringing. The work produced exhibits my understanding that the allure is consequential of this absence. Such consequences resolve themselves in a learned definition of mysticism in terms of intimacy, sexuality, and authority; forceful and manipulative. The images are not intended to ascribe a quality to this definition, but to display it as individual concepts inseparable of one another.”
