Mixed Media - Original Paintings And Digital Mixed Media
OCEAN MYSTERIRES series No.3--Again with this series, the theme is lyrical abstraction--where I use an eclectic collage-- fusion art, mixed media, simultaneously sparse and exciting (I hope) to elicit an inner vision for the viewe in a nonlocal place --beyond time -- where we can harmonize logic with emotion. Although it came together in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina, it started –first, from a sketch-- then to acrylic on canvas --then, photographed and digitally rendered.
THEME:: Se and Ocean Landscapes
Landscapes are the inspiration for much of my work. There is a never-ending challenge to bring together inner-outer-natural- abstract into an eclectic-mixedmedia collage--(slices carved from my original art in a collage, digitally-rendered.) I am looking for the blended elements, both abstract and organic to become a fusion, lyrically abstracted, and ripe for story telling.
In this case, the narrative is about facing challenges-- a visual metaphor for life as we know it. It symbolizes engagement and possible joie de vivre.
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.
