Ready to Hang
"The Perception", was painted for a Museum Lobby Art Show. I wanted something very simple for this show. All the same length, slim vertical pieces. So we have the "Elemental Series". This particular painting had rose colored glasses all over it. Hence the title... I wanted to create a perception within the viewers perception. This painting was meant to provoke. Within the title and the blurred and broken acrylics within only certain colors. Rose colored glasses can make for a great Perception.
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.
