Making Public Art

Tue Aug 14, 2012, 11:46 AM
I will be starting two murals today, in collaboration with Mr. Dorgon, that will stay in the basement of Club 6, 60 6th street in San Francisco. A ton of shows go on down there so I hope some of you in internet-land can make it down there to see them.

Artist Statement

One of the most common complaints, or depending on who it is, compliments regarding my art is the lack of a uniform style or stylistic consistency. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s friends or enemies, most people think I need to find a style and stick to it. I have rejected this slightly archaic idea my entire artistic career.

I’ve spent well over half of my life exploring and studying various types of art, from the earliest petroglyphs to Asian ink painting to the most ephemeral conceptual art and I discovered one thing; I found something in every one of them that I liked! I was unable to hold any one higher than another no matter how hard I tried. And there was pressure to do so... The preachers of the various “‘isms” wanted to make me into a convert instead of someone that can decide for himself what constitutes good art, or at least art that I enjoy.

My personal belief is that not only does each new series of paintings provide a new set of questions that require new answers but a single painting can ask various questions itself. In other words, a single painting can have multiple styles at once as it takes the painter in various directions.

I don’t believe in the omnipotent genius artist creating the art, I believe in the art creating the artist.

There is only one style of painting and that is painting.
