Juror: William Galvez
I paint because I have the urge to express my feelings, intuitions, emotions and perceptions, in a way that is understood and upheld at first glance. Painting/creating is an essential part of my life. Is it because I have been around ART since birth? My Father, my brother, and two sisters have been/are full flesh artists.
My ART continues to evolve around the beauty that I find in nature everywhere. And I don't mean "Beauty" in a literal way, thus beauty can be as intangible as just a mere thought or an idea, and still be an integral part of a composition. I find beauty and inspiration in old and vintage objects. Old objects that have been tarnished with charm, with emotions, with stories and with freedom. I say freedom because these objects give me hundreds of ideas for creations and I can place them anywhere I need them.
Although I am artistically classic, I do like to explore with other approaches, but reinvesting in the tradition of realism. Color, value and contrast are very important to me, they give me the volume and strength that am looking for. I breathe, think, dream, digest and live ART and I want to share my passion for ART with everyone by creating the very best that I can offer …
In the last few years I have been accepting and creating patron's commissions of objects and belongings that has added that special personal touch to their works of Art. "Also, I have decided to pass along all that hard work, pain, struggles, frustrations, but mostly joy and gratification to a group of very dedicated students, that as I once had that interest/anxiety for creating and seeing the development of the metaphor of a white canvas, becoming something so real that you could almost touch". Now, I would love to invite you to enrich your investment for you, your heirs and family enjoyment for years to come, by submitting a commission for that "Very Special Work of Art" that you have always wanted...
Upon Request, now am also engaged in the Fine Art Restoration field, in particular of older oil paintings in need of repairing; tears, holes, scratches, cleaning, re-varnishing etc, etc, etc.
