if you look closely..
you can find works of art everywhere..
it struck me as I was editing my
of this show last weekend
that repetition of form was in abundance...
and line was everywhere...
"the essence of drawing is the line exploring space"
a tiny bit of red will make anything
the color of blood arrests the eye...
"some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun"
grouping things together
pulls the eye forward...
"the creative urge matters. Stories matter. Images matter. it matters that you were born with a genius, a guiding spirit, a daimon that may know more about your destiny than you do."
form, color and line together
"I paint with shapes"
juxtaposing shiny with texture
and natural elements...
is always intriguing..
is infinitely fascinating..
and there is a universal desire to look within and to fill
Curiosity breeds creativity...
"art comes from everywhere. It's your response to your surroundings"
"Creativity belongs to the artist in each of us. To create means to relate. The root meaning of the word art is "to fit together" and we all do this every day.
repetition of form
"the task of art today is to bring chaos into order"
