Research, travel, thinking, experimenting, remembering, incorporated into a strong work ethic are the ways in which I try to lead a purposeful life. I must have some sort of learning disability since I can only understand things deeply in/from/through my studio work after/during the above methods of attempted comprehension.
I am completely scientific with an odd spiritual presence annoyingly walking beside me since childhood. Humans are not the center of this, or any universe, or even of this planet. We humans are violently destructive fools and brilliantly transcendant, humble and fragile beings. I work with the only thing I have - this incredible human mind, led by a deeply aching heart.
Painting/Drawing, primarily on canvas, wood and paper.
Oil paint and mixed media, large scale work.
Hi Nanete! yeah its been so long, how are you doing...well I'm ok and the family...we moved many times so I don't live near McLane anymore...I still paint the same way sometimes accepting commision art...thanks so much for appreciating my art, best regards!
Wonderful work and I like your statement about "destructive fools" ... we are the problem or curse in the universe .... we are probably destined for self-destruct otherwise we will extend our disease throughout the universe.
i had some of your classes about 10years ago. i wonder if you remember me...
i feel that i benefited greatly from my time in your classes. i tell anyone who listens that they should take a class with you if they ever get the chance.
your words helped me to become less fearful of what others thought of my imagery. you helped me to fearlessly make ugly paintings that nobody would ever want.
Thanks, Nanete. I'll try to stop by later in the week. I'll be showing (solo!) at the Severance Building for ArtHop. Part of my new series will be up, but I'm saving the rest cuz I'm going to need more room.
