Figurative Arc News
Have you ever had an experience where you were telling a story through art and someone told you 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.
The imaginative participation of the viewer or listener completes the "arc" of what makes something art. This is why I purposefully leave things out in my work. For example, I use b/w for my fine art male nude photography. By eliminating color, the mind is invited to look at things in a different way from what we typically see (unless you're color blind). I approach painting and directing short films in much the same way. The more I limit my choices, the greater the artistic dialogue with others becomes.
Through the written word and the visual arts, Figurative Arc explores the human condition in dynamic ways. The themes of strength, vulnerability and inclusiveness showcase the masterpieces each of us are.
I invite you to explore this website. You can learn about my affordable print magazine and ebook on the photography page. Matted prints of my fine art are also available. You can also peruse my YouTube channel to see my short films and video tutorials that help other creatives with their own vision.
