Artist Statement (Rant)
This new art movement called Hypersonic Realism relates to the accelerating rate of social and technological
change that has baffled and unsettled humans in recent years.
The reference to Simplisticism concerns the global art movement political party and religion that I launched
several years ago. The only commandment is Be Kind, a quality that seems to be declining.
In recent times there has been an increase in quasi fascist conservative right-wing populism around the world.
The leaders and supporters of this unfortunate tendency cling to the psychotic fantasies of nationalism, patriotism
and irrational fundamental religious belief. They also embrace misogynism, homophobia, the authoritarian warrior
male paradigm and various ludicrous ethnic superiorities.
The human race has been afflicted with these miserable and destructive philosophies throughout our recorded history
and unless we can transform our consciousness and move away from this type of thinking we are doomed to extinction.
We may be threatened by climate change, rogue asteroids and killer robots but our own attraction to the violent
conflict that results from the fear and resentment of the ‘other’ is probably a more persistent threat to our continuance.
Hypersonic Realism also relates to the extremely high-speed landscape drawings that I do in moving cars.
Hypersonic missiles travel faster than the speed of sound, and this explains the fact that when I am drawing
at a hypersonic rate the scratching of the charcoal on paper is only heard when the drawing is completed.
