I want to talk about my latest work, particularly this piece. As a contemporary artist I find myself exploring the mystiques of where my thoughts are derived. Asking myself the same questions I get often. What inspires you? Why have you changed your art? What were your thoughts when you were creating this piece?
Most people react to this painting as being scary. It's a statement. In my previous work over the last several years I have created beautiful contemporary large abstracts. I felt it was time to attract a different audience and express myself as an artist that appreciates the use of design, color and a unique application of painting such as this one. This face is a statement of freedom. Letting my paint flow and mastering the application of where it will take me. It was never intended to be scary.
There is a freedom that happens when I let go of thoughts on how I will please the viewer. To appreciate this piece you have to look at it and how it was created. Much of this painting is about where I will go from here and knowing when to stop.
It's about creating an art form that comes from years of experience and hopefully I will always continue to grow. Light, sounds, vibrations, universal connections with each other on different levels. I think the sophisticated eye will understand.
I welcome any comments positive or negative. We all have our opinions and when it comes to viewing art we either love it or we don't.
" One Artist, one creative hand, one of a kind, never to be duplicated" That is the uniqueness of this painting.
Thank you for coming to my blog.
With gratitude kind and loving thoughts I welcome you,
