For the last few years my art has been developing around a concept I call “Moments of Insight”.  This project is designed to fully explore the concept and publish the results.  The Kickstarter format allows me to share the work and catalog in exchange for your support.   As a result I’ll be able to fully explore the concepts involved with insight and time, finish the series, reach some conclusions and find an audience for the finished works. 

Moments of Insight can involve layers of information, the integration of extremely diverse ideas and the culmination of a vast scope of information becoming one perspective.  We are continuously receiving new information, continuously adjusting our perspectives and creating a new worldview.  These works are about the moment of insight that precedes our formed opinions. 

To the right you'll see some generous rewards I'm offering as part of this project in exchange for your support.  This may be the best value I’ll ever be able to provide for my work. If I offered work for less than this I could probably make more money-shucking oysters by the sea.  I’d rather paint so I’m grateful for your help.  You can see some great examples of the insight series on my website; www.chaucersilverson.com.

All pledges have access to project updates.  You can always inquire about another reward that may come to mind after you see some of my work. Remember, you can contact me with questions about the rewards and I am very grateful for every pledge.  There are 7 levels. 

I’ll be posting updates through the project to inform supporters about progress in my work as well as responding to questions and comments.  So please send me your inquiries.

Thank you for considering this project.  Your pledge will allow me to fully explore and publish the concepts in the Insight Series and insure that the work finds an audience.  I’m looking forward to the task.
