Every time I make a mark its like being in a place I have never been
Of utmost importance to me is the development of color and palette. By using so many layers to build the paintings color develops new meaning and depth. Multiple colors layered and blended convey a sense of connectivity and integration while at the same time suggest a feeling of isolation and disconnect. These two ideas working simultaneously are representative of the contradictory world in which we live.
A multilayered exploration into line, memory and color.
Within thoughts about line and it’s representation I consider how these marks orient in relation to one another. The contrast of the horizontal to the vertical, where the horizontal references the landscape and the vertical the human form, plays on the idea of man integrating and altering an environment
Using straight lines to create curvature and volume. To represent the recklessness of going against natural forces.
Painting draws you into the unknown where spirituality breathes.
There are no perfect lines in nature.
Perfect lines are the idealization of the concept of no curvature and cannot exist in nature. They are figments of our imagination and reach for the unattainable. Lines as we represent them define our wonderful imperfections.
A wonderful studio visit and write up by my friend Gary Brewer where we talked about work and my history and evolution into painting. Thank you Gary and artandcakela !
Art is not an object it is the inspiration to feel deeply
Instead of thinking about dominance and aggression I would like to think about humanity and the human condition.
Mutual Appreciation Society will be having their final show at Torrance Art Museum. It’s a one night celebration of artist and art. Pease come down and join the fun.
