Continuing my series exploring the concept of “talking with strangers” as inspiration. Speaking with someone we never met can be reveling and exciting. Who we really are, what are we thinking, what are we saying, and what do we really feel. The viewer might ask, is this me, or someone I know, or love? Who are we, and why? The stranger in this portrait is a happy, joyfull, upbeat person we all can love.
An Artists most critical and important objective is demanding of themselves FRESH work! Making art must move the soul, engage and fascinate the viewer. So how should we involve the viewer in this “narrative process”?
The primary goal of my artistic efforts is exploring figurative designs of the human condition seeking something fresh and informative. Producing engaging art is another goal, which sometimes moves our very soul in a fascinating manner similar to fine symphonies or great music. When a quality image is completed, what a joyful experience to share that image with others, especially when the viewer finds the art engaging and interesting. Making art is a solitary endeavor requiring that effort be used in a productive manner with positive results, and at the same time provide a certain degree of personal accomplishment.
My “hard edge” technique is somewhat of a return to the semi abstract 1960″s California hard edge school, with a more figurative approach. I am forever grateful for all I’ve learned from the great masters of hardedge work including Deborah Remington, Alex Couwenberg and Ryan Hewett. I am developing this technique and process for a fresh body of work, which will include several similar paintings as part of a series within that work. This concept is based upon my original interest in conceptual portraiture and how it challenges our sensibilities and common assumptions of who we are and how we perceive ourselves. Additionally, the success of my work depends on my ability to visualize the finished product prior to the very first brush stroke. Developing a fresh view of portraits with the idea of exaggerating features and emotions as a means of encouraging the viewer to question the subjects thoughts and motives.
Art making is an emotional and intellectual process, and a reflection of who we are in celebrating the diversity of the human image.
