I've always been
more interested in a graphic style rather than a realistic
or expressionistic representation. Lines, planes and flat
areas of color are what I strive to acheive. Pop-art and illustration
are what have influenced me, especially artists like Lichtenstein,
Wessleman and Nagel. Though I don't choose to deliberately
ape their styles, aspects usually creep in. Sometimes I even
adopt a comic-book motif, complete with borders and word balloons.
In the past few
years I have gotten more into texture. Various mediums, such
as molding paste, have helped to add more depth and character
to my subjects. Often these are randomly placed before paint
is applied, so surprises show up in the final result.
I have always
painted with acrylic. I feel this medium is best suited for
my style. I like bold, bright colors and a good acrylic producer
will have a wide range from which to choose. As one might
deduce from viewing my work, though, there are a few colors
which I use again and again, simply because they are so pleasing
to my eye - medium magenta, anyone?
As far as subject
matter, the female form is one which I have thought provides
a myriad number of possibilities. Often a single feature will
serve as a starting point for the finished piece-whether it
be hair, eyes or even a nose. This source material is one
which I can truly say I will never tire of. Hopefully, I can
even sometimes capture a bit of personality or insight of
one of these special ladies. Hope you enjoy them as well.
