Innovative Artwork

My belief, art is a broader language than the spoken word. Giving meaning to artistic concepts is an entertainment and a cognitive exercise that makes each of us very human.

In a nutshell, Postmodernism is the synthesis of past and present. My imagination is both visual and conceptual.

Getting more personal with the reader

Development of an Artist

Let me declare, I have an auditory processing problem, a birth defect. The disorder was not diagnosed till I was age 28.

In 1981, I left Bloomfield High School, CT, for the University of Houston to study engineering. I was homesick, and finding it difficult to study. Coming home at age 20, I began to work my way through UCONN.

Falling into the arts by accident, I enrolled in visual arts classes to fulfill my core electives, and became an A student. In retrospect, the arts education I enjoyed receiving was excellent.

After college, I wanted to become a businessman. Artistic ideas ever present, I did not want to make figurative or abstract images. Creating something along other lines was my calling.

In 2006, I had the idea of taking a figure in one older painting and putting it into the next painting using computers. If that was all I had decided to do, the story would have ended.

In 2012, studying on my own, I taught myself Photoshop. By 2014, I was gathering ideas to go into production. Working digitally offered me new ways to abstract on the macro and micro levels.

My art is Postmodernism. The first axiom of Post Modern Art is that everything in the arts has already been done. Paradoxically, my Postmodernism aesthetics are new to the audience.
