Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece may(or may not) be apparent upon closer examination. Ghostly and shadowy figures slowly materialize from the chaotic edges and seem to float to an unknown meeting place.
My inspiration in creating this piece came from a section of a much larger group of finger paintings that I had done with my children years ago. I was so fascinated by the shapes and movement of that part of the painting, that I literally cut it out to use as a permanent reference for future paintings.
Those future paintings, like this one, will always be painted using my fingertips! The finished work is sealed under a high gloss varnish.
Born on March 5, 1974 in Pennsylvania, I have been fascinated with art since childhood. Throughout grade school, I spent much of my free time filling the pages of my composition books with comic book heroes, cartoon characters, buildings, landscapes and abstract drawings. I maintained my fascination through high school, which is when I began to affectionately call my incongruent drawings "asymmetrics". During my senior year, my art instructor supplemented my art history instruction with unrestrained experimentation with every type of media that was available. Through this experimentation, I acquired a much greater appreciation for the visual arts. Today, I approach my artwork with the same youthful freedom and experimentation. Each piece still starts with an "asymmetric" - sometimes a series of them. When the sketch matures, I can fully visualize the artwork on a larger, more colorful scale. Then, the real work begins! Thank you for exploring my art.
