Edward Walton Wilcox, "Sacred Intention"
"This body of work represents to me man’s pursuit of a manifestation of the spiritual world. I am fascinated that we are at once primitive and supremely evolved and in turn I attempt to manifest in physical form of a world beyond the visible in the pursuit of unlocking some divine world.
Departing from his dark frames, the matte white is a direct reference not only to the white washing iconoclast, but more cerebrally the purification and spiritualization of the physical object."
Todd Carpenter, "Inseparate"
"With my most recent paintings, I have been examining how the portrayal of different types of scenes relies on different applications of tone.
One of the reasons why I paint in grayscale is to portray light, in an attempt to achieve a degree of realism without relying on color or accurate representation of shapes.
Light factors into our emotional response to an environment: phenomena such as sunsets, candlelight, and darkness can have a strong emotional impact on us."
Todd Carpenter lives and works in Los Angeles and San Diego.
