Statement

  

                           

    •                             Why I Paint

 

 

 

I’m driven by three Elements:

1. CREATIVITY, is the most essential for me,  so I will try to define the word.  Being creative requires tenacity of spirit, someone working in their own way.  Developing  meaningful new ideas, forms and methods, with a specific interpretation of those concepts whether it is abstract or physical, giving forth to a specific design with any medium in mind.  Never letting the imagination cease, just as a child, relentlessly exploring new territory.

 

      

2. COLOR, I am a Colorist-a painter who utilizes color skillfully, by emphasizing color relationships in a work of Art and how that work effects the personal  environment of the viewer.  This is why I became a conceptual artist, to explore these relationships and the effect they have on people.

     . 

3. DETERMINATION- When I create, I try to push beyond the Cube, to discover the new line, something that will effect the direction of art.
