Curator's Note: The way red bleeds into white to create an almost neon pink is staggering.
'Perfect Imperfection', was created as an absolute abstract. I filmed this painting as it's been awhile since my last filming. The video is available through my site if you wish to see this painting being created. This painting is a monster, it captures the life and the death within it's borders. What I mean is, it captures the whole story, the essence of the work is complete. A visceral painting can't be complete in my opinion without the whole story being told, if something is missing, the whole painting is incomplete. I won't comment too much on what this painting is about, or what the composition reflects as I like to leave that up to the viewer to attach their own thoughts and imprints.
I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
