Artist’s statements are suppose to be the artist describing his/her process. I’ve been wanting to learn to write more and you can only do that by…..wait for it….writing!
I find a lot of artist’s statements a real joke and so many don’t even make sense. I decided to have a little fun with this and put together a fictional artist statement. Just a reminder that it is a good thing to lighten up and enjoy the ‘funny’ in life.
I wake up to find myself surrounded by the complexities of life juxtaposed into whimsical forms of energy. It is this energy that I convey when paint meets canvas resulting in a conceptually layered work of fine art. My methodology is consistent as I paint from the inside out. This is my world, my rabbit hole, everything I do is intentional. My paintings resonate and the textures harmonize which brings a rich sense of mystery. My brush strokes convey a peaceful physicality of movement and space under a worked surface of sophistication. This ever evolving mystery becomes my engagement with oneness and the energy in nature which is essential for my process. I don’t follow ‘the rules’ as I accept myself despite the differences that I find myself in conflict with. The painting begins its own self-revelation as it unfolds on canvas creating an intense self-seeking realization within myself as I paint in harmony with the energy from my surroundings. Vertical and horizontal marks effect my compositions and are an expression of the path of my life’s journey reflecting itself back toward the viewer with energy surrounded with peace and love. Through this process I’m able to push through the areas in my life where I have painful hidden frustrations and to emerge the victor with tranquility and all the harmony that life and nature can energize.
