Mixed Media - Original Paintings And Digital Mixed Media
"SEAWORTHY--TO THETIS" This is an abstract collage --part watercolor, part digital created here in my Asheville, N.C studioi. But it refers to good fortunes on all the seas and a growing concern for their temperatures.
The goddess, THETIS wanders with us into the lyrical waters of Homer 's ILIAD keeping care for those at sea..
This narrative abstract of good sea fortunes while "FISHING OFF THE BOW WITH THETIS" dives into the world of myth and mystery with the colors of peace and harmony.
For me, creating images is a coalescing experience. There is that nudge and jolt when I bring together elements into one piece that reminds me of what David Bowie said, "I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring." I "lose track of time" while in the creative flow, and feel a deepening sense of calm. I love the idea of lyrical abstraction where I can blend geometric and organic influences. One technique I have turned to to work toward that goal is Neurographic art, a process rooted in psychology and akin to meditative practices. For more info: https://www.neurographica.us
MEDIA:: Sketch for composition to canvas and/or paper, sometimes, oil pastels, sometimes acrylic paint. The result then captured as a photo and brought to create a JPEG. Finally, digital layering of the original materials.
Objective:: Narrative art with emotive content- that offers an opportunity for the viewer to interpret the story being told, and thus add to the story. Whether as a digital abstractionist, working as well on canvas and with photography to produce mixed media images, my hope is to engage the person who is looking at the image.
Symbolism :: Ever a sense of joy of life, transitions, new perceptions that evoke positive change, the embracing of an inner - symbolic-mythic- visual landscape that can reveal how disparate parts work together when visual impressions, founded on simple or more complex designs, build on a promising tale of life on Earth.
