As Karl Addison´s art and vision evolves - from blank slate, to pen, to paper, to t-shirt, to mural, to installation, to unoccupied public space - so does our understanding and comprehension of the world around us. We may not notice his input, infiltrating our subconscious - our everyday - but it´s there. Negative space filled with a lonely boy´s heart of bricks, a surprise polar bear attack in an alley famous for its gum wall graffiti, and a giant squid eating an octopus, giving lush tones of deep blue and magnetic orange to an otherwise dismal neighborhood. Addison´s art is everywhere, following us wherever we go, whether we know it or not. His purpose (it seems) is three-fold: to amuse us the first time we discover one of his pieces, to draw us in-inviting us to take a closer look, and to make us stop and see every minute detail - and in a sense, to stop and see him. He wants us to value his tiny lines, his details, to appreciate his world-view and hopefully, start extolling the tiny details in our own lives.
