Overview

Familiar with controversy through past exhibits of my paintings. Through smearing paint on canvases the viewer is drawn into truth hung there on the museum wall. Now, choosing words as the medium, this little book is no exception. As an artist, audacious departures from rigid compositional framework are at first seen as scandalous. Often, given time they are viewed as progress. Deceptive forces through the great names and of world powers have dictated our history from generation to generation.

After citing scores of books, historical documents, and archeological data; Garman an Ancient Irish Legend gives what many would consider an unthinkable account of Ireland's revealing but little known Loch Garman legend. Keating, Lhuyd, Armstrong, Moore, Guest, Josephus, Tacitus, combined with Old Testament Prophets as the colors of my pallet, we'll go back to the “earliest dawn of Irish history.” Back indeed, from the legend to an entire people, under various names and of a forgotten past.

There is a link to the Celtic languages from an institutionally dismissed culture. After hearing reports surrounding the recent archeological discoveries at Glauberg, The investigation began in Ireland. Not the most likely place to start looking for a Germanic phonetic. However strange, there is a place called Loch Garman where the island's landmass juts out toward Wales. What really shocked me was that Garman happened to be the main character portrayed in an old legend. The fact that he was an accused thieving, villainous drunkard was motivation enough to seek to clear his name. (I suppose if your name is Wigglesworth, you probably wouldn't care.) An overwhelming sense of discovery seized my thoughts. Could those ancient words hold a clue? They seemed to be the only thing left.

Having paid a debt of gratitude to those who came before us, those who meticulously preserved the old languages and translated them. Which one could know what others born centuries later would build from their work? They exposed the complexity of the monosyllable... and bardic sleight-of-hand. Like a little fleck of blue mixed into the medium peering from the canvas.

As a counter to the beauty which seemed to show at every turn, a strange conduit of bitterness, the true villain emerged from the research. And this conduit snaked through many centuries and touched countless lives. How could something so ancient survive in full vigor so long and in such variety? I began to imagine how this curse of separation could be lifted, and could the bards or the exalted Greco-Roman buffoons have played a part in this? An important piece of that process must be to gain some understanding of it to begin with. To be sure there is a way to break the curse which has undermined our fulfillment, our house and our destiny. Something new must be written there by the Great Author into the heart and mind. Leave God out of it! You're biased! Head for the hills! At some point I'll have put away the brush and the pen when the age’s fight is over, I will go to Him still in my battle-torn rags and say have tender mercy on me. If you thought this was just another religious book, you would be mistaken

A prime example of the very premise of this work:

Two months after it's publication, the bard, William Shakespeare was exposed as a character assassin. His target, King Richard III. Science has proven beyond a reasonable doubt, that Richard has fallen far short of the monstrous image Shakespeare made of him. The discovery of the king's bones vindicated him to a certain extent. It also shows that the entertainment media as social engineers of the day, were highly successful in contaminating public opinion on Richard and his line. Mr. Shakespeare was, as history shows, in cahoots, conspiring with another line, the Tudor's. To further buttress their propaganda, portraits of Richard have shown signs of over-painting meant to give him a more unpleasant appearance.
