For After All What Is Man In Nature?

Everyone Can Afford Clouds by Pete Ippel
Everyone Can Afford Clouds by Pete Ippel

“A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.”

-Blaise Pascal, Pensées #72

Being defined by a world focused on physical limitation, mental disability, and economic bias becomes tiresome. Until action serves all things moot. Fitness never fails, whether it is the condition of being physically fit and healthy, or the quality of being suitable to fulfill a particular role or task. There can be no lies if one only speaks the truth, there can be no intellectual property if one shares ideas freely, there can be no fraud if one commits to authenticity.

Everyone can afford clouds.

In May 2004 he attained an MFA degree in the New Genres department of the San Francisco Art Institute. Presently Pete is a practicing artist whose work is in numerous private collections and has been exhibited in New York, California, and internationally.
