There is an unspoken dimension of what it is to be human that we all experience but rarely articulate in conventional society. Only through a really good novel, a stirring piece of artistry, a heartfelt soundtrack or the occasional deep-seated performance do we seem to have full access to another’s truth. I have found this a difficult interface in my work as an artist.
I have created this platform as an accretion of journals where I reminisce my little escapades into the wild, and divulge all the characters that live in my psyche. I wish to fear not judgement, this is my truth, whether or not it be yours too… Under my pen name “Dutch Liquorice” I freely share all the adventures I’ve taken in my youth with Milo, a ‘real’ imaginary friend. Here I distribute new discoveries in nurturing a conscious perspective on this puzzling, wonderous reality, and simple truths in living NAKED.
To our inner critics who declares egocentricity in this gentle act of broadcasing… you are faultless. But I ask, what else do we have to experience this happening, this universe, if not with our own selves? To streghten a community into self-sustaining systems of interdepence asks individuals to take the first courageous step to be NAKED, all-revealing in our grace.
Without further ado, let us, with proper grace, fuck the niceties and politely-placed social decor so I can kick down this block of how much we can reveal…
Additionally, I intend to deepen my observation and appreciation for humanity’s place on Earth. “My Naked Conscience” allows me to share what I have uncovered living in household of concious people who feed and live in aligment with the land. We explore ways to live a rich yet humble life whilst minimising costs to other beings, people and the planet. Please if you will, come along for the ride.
Do note: I do not yet know how to drive… Xx, Dutch Liquorice
