COLORSCAPES: EVERYTHING IS ART I NEW COLLECTION
“Everything Is Art” is a group of textured, abstract and expressionist Colorscapes en1bracing, for the first time, elements of urban art. This freewheeling expression of the theme of the ubiquity of art is my latest exploration of the nexus of the symbolic and the literal, of the tactile and the pictorial, and of the urban and the urbane.
Art is everywhere-not just in a museum, but out in the streets, around us, and even within us. Each of the works in this collection carries carefully curated words, all containing “art,” to denote art’s presence in seemingly unrelated aspects of our daily routines. The words remind us that whichever way we look, art is in every facet of our experience. Adding body, literally, to this then,e is the use of heavy impasto that gives each piece a distinctive physical definition, with the undulations of the surface imparting another layer of fascination-a graffiti of light and shadow across the landscape of each canvas.
