If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
NOW DRAWING. With an absence of nearly 30 years as a practicing artist where creative energies were always focused elsewhere, the need to make art became so intense that it could no longer be denied. Could the buried ability that lay dormant all these years be unearthed? A good friend who is a well known painter encouraged with the assurance of, “You have not wasted nor lost 30 years. You have had 30 years of input and it has to output somewhere”.
As a dealer in fine arts, an intImate connection to the action of making art had remained although obviously from another view point.. Frequent travels in Europe as well as in North America helped build a visual library thus expanding the visual vocabulary.
About my artwork
CHIAROSCURO - SPACE - MYSTERY - SENSUOUSNESS
Early influences in a past abstraction that were derived from landscapes are elements that come forth in the new work. Light and shadow dictate a sense of space which define it as well as dissolve it. The areas of ambiguity create a sense of mystery as well as a tactile sensuousness in the forms.
Hi there Kate,
Sorry for not responding earlier on, I've been hard at it (painting), so not been online, and only just received notification via email....
I got your comment now though, and must say many thanks for your kind words :)
Also, yes - there does seem to be a dearth so-called 'traditional-based' skills in evidence these days (guess it requires such things as a little 'concentration and learning' which are kind of obsolete now, compared to creating something that is verbally explained in a fashionable context instead ;)
Like Jackie (below) I also had a 15 year sojourn from fine art - on relection, somewhat of a 'bad' decision ;) No matter - at lest you appear to have channelled your energies into business, which no doubt will aid in your abilities to build creatively ;)
Having had a 'scout around' your work, it's obvious you're affinity with that of light and composition :)
I thank YOU very much indeed for YOUR answer by return! Definitely I will let YOU know all the news about my works and future shows. Next month I will make new photos from new works. I will keep you posted! I stay tuned.
I hope you have a wonderful time and you move forward with all what you want!!!
