Dan Neuser Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement After 37 years of life on this Earth, I can honestly say that I know exactly who I am, and what I want. Who I am is an artist and photographer, and what I want is to be an artist and photographer. There are plenty of people out there living their lives blinded by what they are told to believe and who they are told to be. Long ago I left the clones behind and dedicated my life to truth and art. I’ve lived my life alone, without them, my confidants, leaving the lost boys behind in a life I once knew, and they’ll stay there trapped forever unknowingly; as if spellbound in a Lotus flower induced dream they can’t rouse from. And I often wonder to myself, when the dreamers are on their death beds will they wish for just one more day at the office, just one more bigger sale to increase their status; to earn even more respect from those who never really mattered or respected them anyway? I honestly don’t think so. But when it’s too late it’s too late, and there’s nothing anyone can ever do to change that. Life is unbiased and cruel and it’s important to understand that it’s just life being life; it’s nothing personal. I don’t think that people who walk around angry all the time know this; they’re stuck in their own dreams, always wanting more or better, when the real priceless commodities are 100% free for the taking, but only if you can wake up and see them. Life is art and art is truth. Live it, know it, and immerse yourself in it. The rest is all really quite trivial.
