Statement

My artwork is a mixture of mediums that include watercolor and then a transformation to photography and finished digitally to enhance texture. My form of expression through each piece is to recognize each medium’s attributes to my composition. Furthermore my artwork is a creative way to collaborate three mediums of contrasting values in harmony with each other. Hence, the viewer is not exposed to one medium, but several at work in a finished piece filled with richer more vibrant representation of the original work. Textures come alive in the paper as the result of digital finishing, and contours are assigned throughout the piece after being photographed. Also, lines that are normally invisible to the viewer are brought forth digitally through assigned color to further enrich the composition and give it complex feel.
My approach of working with metal and photograph is to represent nature’s illuminating essence and form, much like origami paper design. What I wanted to convey in my pieces is nature’s balance of shadow and light in the form of negative and positive aspects using a monochromatic medium such as sheet metal.

In summary, my method involves three mediums in unison: a painted watercolor piece that is photo imaged and digitally finished. I saturate the uncompressed paper with watercolor paint first. Then, after being completely dry I place it through the photograph process to identify texture within the piece. The photo imaged file is then finished through a process of digital color saturation and printed on silver tone photo paper.

Artist Biography:

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and I’m currently living in Huntersville, NC with my wife and daughter. My background in Art stems from a love of geometric art and areas of Design. I earned accreditation from Central Piedmont in Charlotte through their Design curriculum in the Commercial Arts program. I’ve worked on screen printing assignments and assisted on commercial productions. After college I traveled throughout the Pacific North West states and Mid-West for future inspiration into abstract botany renderings. My recent projects have included book illustrations and local exhibits at the Charlotte Art League. Please feel free to check out my artwork online at www.absolutearts.com keyword: Curt Myers.

Premise of the “Transition” exhibit
The premise of the exhibit is to demonstrate the versatility of mixed media as an art form. The combining of unlikely mediums to create harmonious and to identify how each mixed medium interacts to draw out certain quality characteristic, such as, digital art, watercolor, photograph and metal. The exhibit will show transformation of color from one medium to the next indicating how color is saturated using watercolor, then through photograph and finished with digital filtering.

Thank you for your time and consideration in viewing my pieces. Your comments are most welcomed.
Sincerely, Curt Myers
