Statement

ARTIST'S STATEMENT    

Through many evolutions of my artwork, I have truly arrived at a place with my art where I

believe it is the truest and purest expression of me. My feelings for any painting are

expressed through my creating that painting. So, I want to keep my paintings somewhat

unfinished and as a work-in-progress with my processes of both painting and drawing

standing out. My viewers can then fill in however they choose and really personally

connect with a painting. I want them to connect emotionally with the essence or soul

of my subject matter while at the same time take the journey on the canvas that I have given

them through all elements (color, paint application, medium, light, form, line etc).

 

In my art, line, form and a refined drawn image are as important to me as color, paint and

paint application. And, I can be drawn to just about anything; a line, a gesture, a color 

moment or a mood. I am always aware of the canvas as the flat, 2 dimensional object that it

is. I am always aware of my viewer. And, I am always thinking of how I am leading my

viewer around each canvas and why. My viewer connects with my art as well as with me. 

 

At a particular point in the evolution of my painting, I learned that what I do or say or express with my art is the all encompassing expression of me. The essence of me cannot really be summed up in a word or a sentence or even a description. But it can be and is magnificently 

expressed through my art. It is my desire to be seen, heard, felt, thought of and remembered out in the world.

 

And ultimately, in giving my art and thus me out into the world, I want my my art to be so

stimulating, such a truly sensitive expression that as someone experiences it, full feelings are

felt and new moments are discovered and noticed, continually.
