Artist Statement Draft One: An idea for an upcoming series of works.
This is not a conceptual piece. This is not an artist’s emotional experience, and initially the painting itself has no meaning. The subject simply exists, and thus is re-produced in two layers, using the materials acrylic and graphite, respectively. It is a critical subjective viewing experience, encouraging the viewer to change their physical position in relation to the drawing, using the light available to detect each layer. This allows the viewers unique perception to emerge and find personal interpretation of each work.
The piece should be viewed in real life, the image via photograph represents a different idea, and it is difficult to show what I am describing above. Oh well.

I found it at an antique mall for 75 bucks. I couldn't afford it, but I was drawn to it. So, I sold some old hip cloths and took my change to the coin star. I am so glad it is in my house, as it inspires an new kind of style in me. This piece was well worth it.

St. Mary's Cemetery in Brussells Missouri. Acrylic on Parchment paper, with graphite. I am really enjoying this transparent graphite look, which gets a bit lost over acrylic paint. The dryer the acrylic the better, especially when used on parchment.
