I did title this Art Peers (not Art Prize). This event is held in the east town area of Grand Rapids. It's for only one day the 17th of September. They do a great job and a lot of artists participate. I again will be showing my concrete sculpture at my favorite place, Wealthy at Charles, located on the corner of Wealthy and Charles. Today I'm posting just a sampling of it. It will be a fun piece perfect for indoors as well as outdoors. I'll keep you posted and show you more as it progresses. I will have it done and even delivered this week!
This two faced guy will need a name. Any suggestions?
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
