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.
