ESSENCE /hybrid prints on canvas/16"x16"
Through my artwork, I have sought a new hybrid art form to give depth to the depiction of the human figure. I favor capturing the action by making an impression with a fluid line to express the ESSENCE of a single moment in time. With this freedom, I convey the sensation of an experience. The speed, with which the drawing flows, preserves the spontaneity, expressive distortions and integrity in the clean line work. Simple colors are necessary for resolution and spatial definition to complete the vision. The surface textures are visual and tactile, resulting from the use of a water-based compound. The image becomes artifact, emulating a marked cave wall. The emotional and instinctual impulse that has driven me along a path to search for a new form of expression has brought the depths of the spirit of the moment out through the texture, color to capture my mind’s ESSENCE, through my line work.
