I consider my artwork to be free flowing. All of my pieces start off the same way, a piece of canvas and some containers of paint. With little to no direction, other than that of a couple drinks and good music playing in the background. I begin laying down layers upon layers of paint, not over days but in one session.Sometimes lasting a few short minutes while other sessions my last all day.
This is why I have yet to title any of my pieces or state my motivation behind each piece. My goal is to have the viewer feel what the piece says to them. Not for me to give you my interpretation of what i think it is. Simply put my motivation is, my desire to create and to share my work with others.
Channing was born in Tennessee and grew up in Florida, he is currently living in Portland, Oregon Channing is a self taught artist, who uses multiple forms of media for his creations. He in particular is drawn to abstract expressionism and has drawn is influence from that of Pollock, Chihuly, Godard and the many local talented artist he has encountered throughout his travels. Channing has spent the last 17 years serving our country proudly in the United States Army. His one true passion and escape from his daily regimented duties is his artwork. It is for this reason that his works are limitless and without any boundaries. He works freely from the borders of the canvas and wants the viewer see and feel what the art means to them.
