Artists Describing Their Art:
- Artist Statement Bryan Kemila ------------------------------ In 1999 I went to the Da Vinci exhibit in Victoria British Columbia. I looked at his art. Poor sap. I could do so much better Well, hog-tie me and throw me a bone, I found out I couldnt. The 3 hours I spent at the exhibit gave me confidence, and the time after gave me realization. I wasnt any good. Cracker Jack But I wanted to do art. I wanted to paint. I would do it come hell or high water. Well, maybe not hell. I drew pictures of naked girls from the magazines. Eventually I improved. Then I realized I was better than Da Vinci, if not in reality, in the deep recesses of my sick little mind. So come with me. Explore my art, and let me know what you think. But dont offend me as Im just a introvert kind of a guy. But actually, I do like detail in my paintings. To paint the breasts and legs of a beautiful woman is an experience. They must be accurately drawn and painted. The eyes, the mouth, the very essense of a woman must be attained. The most beautiful creature on the ...

- Art must communicate ideas and have them received the way the artist intends, reaching as many viewers as possible to provoke an emotional response. If you go for those who are in the know about artistic periods, about current trends, and about a symbolic language that requires training to understand, then the artist will miss a huge audience. The artist then becomes a slave to styles created by others. If on the other hand, you work towards reaching multiple levels of viewers, then your task becomes more difficult, and at the same time, more fulfilling. An artist who creates a language will not fit into any already existing niche, and will alienate those looking for something they already know about, like gallerists, collectors and museums. Creativity, however, is like water...it will find its way around such obstructions, and bring the artist satisfaction and a clientele that appreciates what they create without regard for what's in fashion. Most of all, this way of producing reflects the rarity of truth in a world mostly dedicated to superficial values. ...
