"The pieces I selected for this release were created last year and they
were created with spray paint. I thought they were trippy and perfect
for this project.
The first time I took psychedelics was at
Lollapalooza in 1996. If I had to offer some advice to anyone about them
I would give the same advice that I got to start out with microdosing,
slowly increase and be in nature." - Hoxxoh
Douglas Hoekzema, aka Hoxxoh attempts to show us a different way of viewing time through a means of exploring its natural fabric. His work creates a new foundation and approach to evaluating and appreciating time. The oscillation of the pendulum paints time through gravity’s natural pull. Expressing how we can be pulled in one direction, when we are really meant to be going in another. How resistance creates a struggle and a false sense of control. Where if we follow the natural flow of times predetermined, yet unseen path, an experience of beauty and pure form will take shape.
Hoxxoh's work isn't about the ebbs and flows of time eventually determining whether our existence will stand to be recognized, but instead serves to show that time in itself is a beautiful energy meant to be marveled at. His works represent what happens when we let go of our control of time and let its predetermined course take control. Spheres of life are on display, illustrating the motions of space and time working in unison to create natural order. His paintings depict time as a sweet ride that flows by mixing spontaneity with precision. The physical presence of time displayed in its most natural form.
As Hoxxoh’s pendulum swings, never touching the canvas, it's hypnotizing motions serve to show us that in the end, everything seems to have ended up in its proper place.
Attempting to control what we have no control over is a blank canvas. Letting go of our preconceived notion of time is what Hoxxoh’s work shows us.
