Artist’s Journal: NUMBER 69

1-E – 2015

1-E – 2015Following up on my thoughts in regards to artist’s statements (Artist’s Journal: 68) and, attempting to define what or how it is that I do what I do, I’ll leave it to Gustave Flaubert (1821 – 1880) and his thoughts about the subject:

The artist is merely a recording apparatus for sensory perceptions. …No theories! Works… Theories corrupt men… We are a shimmering chaos. I come in front of my theme I lose myself in it…

The artist has no right, “to express his opinion on anything no matter what. Has God ever expressed an opinion?… I believe that great art is scientific and impersonal… I want neither love nor hatred nor pity nor anger…  

2-E – 2015Here are two of my latest works which are included in my upcoming show at the the Colo Colo Gallery in New Bedford from October 17 to November 6, 2015.

The opening reception is on Saturday, October 17 from 5 to 8 PM.
