Artist’s statements have always seemed redundant to me. The work generally speaks for itself. But here goes..
For me it’s about shapes, color and lines interacting and relating to each other. Representational, abstract, non-objective they’re all the same. Light against dark, color against color, line intersecting line. I‘m as comfortable with super realism as I am with abstract expressionism.
Then, of course, there’s the medium. I love the paint. I love the act of painting. I love how it flows and how it takes on a direction on it’s own. It’s like magic. With one stroke something appears before your eyes that wasn’t there before. An image. An emotion. With each stroke or drip it changes. It’s an amazing experience. I highly recommend it.
And then there’s image. I am a visual artist. I‘m after strong images, images that evoke a feeling. Starkness, warmth, love, violence, emptiness, beauty, strength. I want the painting or drawing to stand on it’s own.
I am a painter. I cannot escape that fact. There have been times I‘ve tried but I always return. It’s not what I do. It’s what I am.
