Visual art has been important to me since childhood - not that I have always painted. I haven’t. But how things “look” has always mattered enormously, and seeing beauty has been a constant quest. Of course I haven’t looked for conventional beauty, not at all. But I have craved something else. The beauty I seek is there to be seen in a myriad ways, all of which have spoken to me in their different voices. Click here to see some examples.
Recently I have begun to try to express my work through the modality of painting, in a deliberate effort. My aim is to transmit the same energy I offer to those I work with, through my paintings. At the same time I aim to penetrate another dimension.
There is much more I could say here - but what I am describing is an experience. You have a chance to find out what I mean if you purchase one or more of the giclee prints I have had specially made of some of my pictures. Look at the paintings yourself. You can see them here.
I hope you will be able to see some of the original paintings at the Brighton Artists Open Houses Festival in May 2021, when I will be speaking about the work too. It was to have happened in May last year, 2020, but like so much was cancelled because of covid. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Paintings, prints and cards will be on sale. Visit the Artists Open Houses Festival (AOH) website here.
Meantime please look at the giclee prints in my shop.
Recorded Art Interview - 'Art as Energy'
A couple of years ago, I gave an interview to the online journal, The Autumn Salon, which explored my view of fundamental and profound questions such as, 'What is the purpose of art?', 'What role does energy play in the creation and perception of art?', 'Authenticity in Art' and much more. You can listen to the interview here, introduced by my friend, arts curator of The Autumn Salon, Christos Vayenas:
