atmosphere distribution. line. alumni show 2013
I have always wanted to be a painter. It is something that I knew even if I did not do it as an main career path that I would never be without a paint brush near by- It is intuitive like a fish to water. I tried to fight the desire but it over powers me and I give in.
I find myself after school needing to do it more than anything it is like oxygen to me. I need it for my survival. It allows me to step away from my computer work and into the grain of the canvas.
This year for the Alumni Show at CCS I entered two paintings. One of which I had been working on on and off for a few years the other a form study that I did originally for work than fell in love with stroke and transferred it on to a larger canvas.
The first piece entitled Atmosphere Distribution explores the idea of serving; the desire to please and give while seeking truth in life. The second piece is entitled Line which explores the beauty, simplicity and complexity of a line. A line creates all life. A line is the most powerful implied element in nature. It has visual presence. It creates emotional connection. It creates focal points, and interest. My work stems from the desire to bring light to the concept of a line.
I have never shown my original oils or acrylics in fact they go in a pile against my wall never to see the light of day again ( much like my grandma) but unlike her I feel like I am exposed and naked when someone looks at one of my paintings. This show represented the unveiling of them and me as a painter. I am a painter- and damn proud of it. I will keep creating. Onward to EPICness now. The ceiling can not hold me.
