My work looks simple, easy, almost basic, …as if anyone could do it. -Hey, Anyone could but they don’t!. I was the FIRST PERSON to to construct, draw or paint “IT” and that IS what counts! I had the idea!
I say this because I often get comments like “Uh, I can do this!” from the clueless simple minds of the world who happen to stumble upon my ART on the net.
The exact same engraving of the grid (with the ‘Golden Section’ as it’s DNA) is on the other side as well, which is characteristic of the repetitive behaviours found in the little (sometimes autistic) nerd with special powers.

It won’t fall unless you push it. -If you look at it long enough(squinting) it even looks “embossed”! “Everything is only a Trick” carries the ‘Golden Section’ as it’s DNA.
