 I would like to reveal. Knowledge elevates. Understanding endures.

I want to draw. Through beauty or eloquence I will bring them in.

I want my work to stay with you. If it haunts you, I have succeeded.

I would like to be concise, clever, and well spoken. The subtle metaphor reaches.

I will be significant. To an audience not always interested, I will persuade.

I would like to confront. If you are the same as when you arrived, I have failed.

I want to climb fences. Speak across generations, personalities, and cultures.

I am an educator. This is my philosophy of education.

I am an artist. This is my artist statement.

Emerson David Myers is a painter, sculptor, printmaker, digital artist, and educator who is currently living in the United States and Japan. He received his MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and a Masters of Art Education from Boston University. His work focuses on socio-political issues, revolving around a continued and pressing desire to educate and inform his audience.
Most of his inspiration comes from his varied professional background and education. An degree in Political Science and 20th Century History, a decade as an Art and Social Science teacher, years as a certified carpenter's apprentice, a design manager for a local newspaper, as well as a decade living broad, particularly Japan, has molded his approach to art and choices of subject matter.
