contemporary art studio statement

I follow an academic discourse in my art practice. In Ancient Greek the word praxis referred to activity engaged in by free people. Aristotle held that there were three basic activities: theoria, poiesis & praxis. There corresponded to these kinds of activity three types of knowledge: theoretical, to which the end goal was truth; poetical, to which the end goal was production; and practical, to which the end goal was action. Aristotle further divided the practical knowledge into ethics, economics & politics

Colorist art & design practice in abstraction, icon fotowork & positive type prints over 20 years. I work in a pure aesthetic style with interests in the Pattern & Decoration movements. My unique praxis, explores positive cultural concepts in humanity. I offer the viewer reflection through a conceptual abstract colorist palette. I nurture & share my artistic technique & discipline. My artworks are tools for transformation & give voice to positive issues. My muse is colorist photography. Conceptually, I produce refreshing, uplifting & insightful cultural manifestations through art, design & technology | a transmedia discourse.
