Figurative Arc News

Have you ever been told while making art that you were doing it wrong? Often these negative life experiences make us believe we do not have the talent to “do it right.”  I believe we all have important stories to share and have the creative ability to tell them.  We just need to develop our own voice and believe in ourselves.  I hope you will keep this in mind when you view my work. 

 

I am a painter, photographer and filmmaker that enjoys experimenting with various methods. My painting began with more representative work, then explored abstract expressionism and now combines both in a new approach.  You can check out what I'm doing on my painting page.

My photography consists mainly of artistic male nudes. This culminated into a poetry ebook: “Hero Myth of the Masculine Journey” and a print magazine.  You can preview them on my photography page.  I'm currently writing an ongoing sci-fi story on my blog called Indentured Circus, which combines poetry and the human figure. 


My short films use an experimental narrative structure where symbolic visuals and sounds become the dialogue.  You can check them out on my Vimeo channel 


Thank you for your interest in Figurative Arc.  The imaginative participation of the viewer or listener completes the "arc" of what makes something art.  As such, ​​I invite you to explore this website.  If you like my work, please express this on our Facebook Page, where you will also find our latest art news.  In the meantime, may our next creative endeavor be an inspiring one! 


Blessings,
