I invented a fine art form, to which, I had to invent a word for. The word I came up with is Chromastratagraphy. I use photography as a foundation, plus the color theory of paint, plus the processes of printmaking.
When creating work I photograph a wheatpaste, a piece of architecture, and a number. I print the work on canvas and I stretch it onto frames that I construct out of sustainably sourced Redwood.
I believe creating art is about the process. The experience that the artist goes through to create the work is unique and the artwork itself is what others can enjoy. It is a window into what others may not be able to do but can recognize & appreciate.
Most of my opinions are about what art should be, as a whole and not about an abstract concept specific to an individual piece. That is what I think titles are for. Artwork should not need to be explained. The art comes from the experience, the journey. And just like any other journey, it’s not solely about the destination, it’s about everything it took to get there & where the artist has come from. Each piece, ultimately , is the source, echo & resolution of the artist, their journey & their destination. The work will speak for itself, if the talent is there.
I also believe that the artist has a responsibility to the community & culture as a whole. Artists have a unique ability to tap into the collective sub-conscious. From there, it is their choice whether they use it to depict it as it’s being seen or to see it for what it could be & use that to create towards a better well being. In short, an artist can create positively & I believe they should.
People like my work because I create it going through a positive experience & I create it to have a positive experience and I think that’s what real talent is.
