Louie Nash, Arlington, TX Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement Louie "Bo" Nash
Upon his birth, astrologers predicted that Bo would grow up to either become a monarch with unparalleled breadth of sovereignty, or would shed himself of all earthly comforts and become a monk -- a perfectly enlightened spiritual being who would assist all mankind to achieve true enlightenment.
At the age of eighteen, Bo shocked those same soothsayers and clairvoyants by instead enrolling in college where he played NintendoTM and drank a lot of beer. After failing to successfully drop out of this prestigious institution of "higher learning," Bo entered the corporate world where he immediately realized that due to his innate abilities to memorize multiplication tables beyond "the fives" and construct complete sentences (with both nouns and verbs), he was vastly overqualified to ever serve in any position of executive management.
Thus having directly observed the fate of his career path to be far worse than even Erwin Schrödinger's tabby could fear, Bo said "screw this crap," turned off Conan O'Brien, rolled over and went to sleep. The next day he woke up having successfully repressed the memory of his moment of acute self-awareness. He kept this frightful realization thoroughly bottled up and far from thought for several years -- until it was brought to the forefront of his consciousness while trying to write this damn biography.
