Focusing art on an Individualized Cultural Experience: Fiction & Testing Original Facts

Ingenuity: The newness of an imagination

Focusing on an original apple can be as authentic as God’s creation of Eve, but drawn or painted to appear as flesh, whether fruit or human, without blemishes, yet if an apple’s skin is painted orange, is it not an apple?

Scotch tape used to hold down paper is different from what is used for taping down a tarp. The scotch tape will not work when a strong wind blows. Should I use stronger tape?

An artist’s imagination is similar to a non-artist or from that of a child, yet nor is a child’s imagination equal to or greater than that of an artist or non-artist.

Even when poured from a faucet, fresh spring water tastes like blocks of melting ice covered in snow.

Every so often, the sun creates shadows that do not cast yet exist extended within a cloud’s shadow. So, if there is no shadow, does the image exist?

Realism: The imagination assumes to be new

My artwork focuses on and depicts those often-overlooked thoughts left unattended in some lives, both theirs and ours. These overlooked facets of life, which become thoughts or the sparkles of life, expose how we arrange our lives yet neglect what is evident about the self.

We may wonder about their purpose or ours daily or within moments of a month, yet we find opposition to the medium triggering the questions we find ourselves left with.

We lose a sense of self in what we find, but we burn our flesh in guilt, or more so: God’s anger does not deter them or us from original sin.

While the nature of an atom is to hold energy, and the heart of the flesh is to contain it. In and of itself, there is a will to explode when desire is left wanting.

I offer originally produced & reproduction of artworks.

Originals consist of drawings I compose from memory or observations on paper produced as oils on canvas, watercolor on paper, and or digitally created paintings and drawings.

Reproductions consist of portraits drawn from photographs and digitally generated inkjet prints of created original artworks in paintings and drawings reproduced as museum quality 100% rag or canvas Giclee prints.

I rarely draw from photographs, but if I do use them, I use them for compositional references.

Giclee prints are museum-quality prints on 100% archival acid-free rag paper or treated canvas materials. Each provides a vivid reproduction of the original artwork, often at 23.32% less cost of its original oil painting, watercolor, or color drawing sell price. Current research on Giclee’s is that its image will last one hundred years before fading. That is, it last three times longer than other printing methods. Giclee prints will retain their original color vibrancy and visual quality, only matched by the artwork it represents. Providing prints are appropriately displayed and not in direct sunlight or introduced to toxic chemicals in the air. Prints of any kind should be protected behind archival glass and acid-free matting and are framed.

Art & Healing

Creativity is a freeing process that channels negative and positive thoughts into actions. It is transforming physically and psychologically. Breaking through bondage, an original portrait is everything we dare think of, keeps what is in us, or helps heal us. Notion begat form, and the endangered species lose sight of its vision, though we aspire to be free; creativity imagines us there.

The Abstraction of an unhealed Expression

But how do we accomplish healing? How do we channel creative energy in this way? How do we turn artistic actions into healing properties? The answer lurks in being willing to make self-awareness a goal.

Painting & Drawing

I have looked into the eyes and at the hands of people and have seen them create breathtaking works of art.

I have witness originality being shaped and have experienced the pouring out of creativity.

I have witness people give drawings and paintings that extra appeal.

Throughout, the use of artist tools brought forth self-awareness, an appreciation for art, and healing powers.

Color & Form

Some properties work together while others will never.

Within all things is Color. Blue, Red, and Yellow form properties of reality. The form is natural like a leaf or geometric like a square. Together with color and form become the properties that present something real.

Yet, color is subjective, and so is a form. A black and white or a color image of the same image is familiar? Although, subjective. Is it the form of an image or the color of that image that makes it real?
