I had a liberating moment in art college. I asked Professor Walker, "What do I do if it all comes wrong?"
He replied, with a lovely smile, "Well, you can wipe it all off and start all over once again."
There's a deep, khol philosophy in that, if you think about it.
My Art Statement is based somewhat on it. I'm an intuitive painter, majorly influenced by music, and when I want to theorize I do it in words, off-canvas so to speak.
Which means my art is not about searching for deep, hidden life truths or grappling with incomprehensible psychological polemics. Nor is it about portraying social, cultural, and political issues.
All I'm really interested in is in achieving a visual balance from my perspective - of colors, of shapes, of textures, of ideas - and, of course, having a lot of fun while I am at it. My paintings are not planned, they develop. The painting comes first and then the title - and the title may be anything that catches my fancy at that particular moment.
I work in a variety of media - Oil, Acrylic, Gouache, Water-color, Ink, Pastels, Charcoal, Pen, Pencil, Digital, Collage, Papier Mache, and Clay.
Take a look at my Art Portfolio, Art Articles, and Art Projects.
