"About Art: 'Art is everything' or 'Art is nothing' or 'Art is decorative' or 'Art is sensual' or 'Art is meaningful' .... and on and on are the many comments from patrons, museum directors, curators, gallery dealers, general public, family and friends ... all of whom have various concepts / definitions / rationales about philosophical art values.
But what does ART mean to me, the painter - the person?! The answers are in the work ... during the activity.
I don't stop to define ... only to view, to perceive and, perhaps, to intuitively analyze ... but mainly to continue the activity!! Everything becomes automatic when it goes well. Everything becomes ineffective when it doesn't go well; and then, I put it away and turn to another painting-drawing-print .... or to nothing; but ART is always with me ... a life style in most endeavors .... a part of the whole!
I must, therefore, do my work within a framework that is dictated by knowledge, experience and mood. These three segments of my being occasionally stir me independently.
More often, they are a harmonious blend. "
