"I prefer to work on site amongst an audience.  Whereas many Artists rely on the seclusion of their studios, I only want to share my mission immediately.  Because my work is not just an expression of my self, it does not belong only to me.  My work is about the expansion of our consciousness, about the pursuit of something larger than ourselves.  I distort my images only to force my  rational intellect to make sense out of something extraordinary.  I believe that the mysterious things in life are also the most inspiring and intriguing.  Doubt, belief, imagination, passion; these are just some of the things that make us so human.  These are just some of the things that make us alive.  Our creativity is what makes life sparkle. In my work, I celebrate passion and intellect.  I am celebrating the roses we too often forget to smell."  - Basil 2005
