ARTIST STATEMENT -------------------------"ART on GLASS"
horse and the canvas are not that much different. Perceptive
riders adjust their training to accommodate the horse's personality,
mood and talent. The gifted artist will interpret and visualize
for an audience eager to expand on what they might not otherwise
recognize. Both are teaching professions.
artist must cajole, show and enlighten the moment that many
would not appreciate without the art. So many times I have
stopped at the end of day and just caught the light when it
turns to brilliant color the instant before dark. And just
as often I have wondered- did any one else see that?
breath, pause and allow the vision to come. My chestnut horse
on a vivid green hill with a sunset backlighting his form.
The light infuses
in a transparent wash that does not stop at the horse but
embraces me through him. Clearly I see for that instance that
all the molecules of
horse, grass, hill, sky, and sunset are a perfect combination
of color, light and spirit. All colors are present! The blue
of the sky reflected
in the iridescence of a rich coat, the white of the clouds
on the angle of a peaceful face, the boldness of red in the
deepest of shadows and a
spectrum of other colors.
quick is it gone, that with my exhale, I am worldly again.
To capture with paint that which the soul sees is not quite
possible, but perhaps
with some luck and hard work a glimpse of the unseen obvious
will touch a viewer.
glass as the canvas I mimic the color palette and the light
of those moments with tile/glass paint. I mix the colors myself
and add just a touch of oil. The glass is chosen as an additional
palate that will enhance and reflect the artwork and I treat
it as a color. When placed in a window the art responds to
the changing light of the day or as on a rainy day the color
becomes bold with the gray light as a mat around it. Placed
on a wall another transformation occurs and the work absorbs
the wall color. The beauty of glass and the form of the horse
changes to fit time, light and placement.
