“If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” – Ecclesiastes 4:10
This passage speaks volumes about my life as an artist and my artwork. Even though artists work independently of others, once the act of creativity has been completed, the artist depends greatly on people willing to believe in the artist, show the art, hang the work on the walls, create invitations, write press releases, take documentary photographs and possibly buy the art. The completion of the artist’s expression cannot be accomplished without many other people helping them up.
In my specific artwork, I place tremendous importance on each part helping the other. I begin each piece with color combinations in mind—colors that will help each other to be more pleasing to the eye. The same is true with combinations of texture, shape, value (lights and darks) and materials. These elements by themselves are not very interesting, but when each helps the other, one is able to see their full beauty.
