At Play In The Space Between Mystery And Meaning

The idea that art has to adhere to a single “ism” to be valid died with the passing of postmodernism. There’s no single ism that makes it true. Visual art needs to blend multiple threads, including historical traditions, modernist progression, postmodern theory and an embrace of our digital reality. Abstraction is nice but it’s limited. Figurative has its place but only as a complement, not a destination. Theory is great but it’s words about pictures and the picture is what matters most. It all matters in the making of art, art that embraces skillful means with ideas and visions that haven’t existed before. That’s what I offer in my work and you can find out more… here.
