Fine art; Abstract Representational
I believe the category could be considered “Assemblage” by those who would like to put a name on my style.
The process involves creating an image that would represent an object or scene and interpret that visual image with the emotional essence that expresses how I feel about the subject matter. Then, using a canvas, board, or Masonite as the substrate, add three-dimensional items like fabric, twine, rope, hemp, wire, leather, wood, etc. to get dynamic movement and texture in the design while attempting to remove the original essence of the chosen elements. These elements would then be covered with different paints or inks and treated like a traditional painting.
The end result is a somewhat traditional piece of artwork displayed and hung on the wall, if so chosen.
For a complete portfolio, new art pieces, upcoming exhibits, or to just say “Hi” to an old friend and let me know what you’re doing.
Let me know your thoughts on my new endeavor, tattoo illustration! I’d like to teach a class at CCAD.
