|Entrée des Artistes ~ 36x48|
Finding creative meaning requires one to explore their passion. I want the viewer to experience the scene I have painted in such a way that they are touched in some sense; by the beauty of it, by the colors used, or perhaps a memory of theirs is triggered. I believe one's artwork must reflect that journey that the artist takes and express it in such a way that the viewer feels the artist's passion.
A representational style is the foundation for my work. I use traditional oil paints and brushes on canvas or linen that is mounted on stretcher bars or canvas board.
In my new painting series, I consider questions such as: 'How do we “See” architecture?', 'In what ways does architecture affect us, our culture, or our environment?' I explore some of these questions by bringing forth an architectural detail or structure and placing it out of context into an abstract environment. Sometimes I have the detail or structure emerge from the background. There's a mystery and a spiritual aspect as to how the painting develops and to me, it's like learning a foreign language. I have named my recent painting series 'Architectural Lingua'; lingua is Latin for language or tongue. Therefore, these paintings are titled in different languages, with the titles loosely referring to the type of structure or style or perhaps to its 'spiritual' nature.
