ARTIST STATEMENT

 

LV #2 LG
LV #2 – 2016

When I’m asked why did I want to be an artist, well I don’t remember wanting to be anything else. I am a painter. That in itself is a statement. 

I still believe, as Picasso believed, that I must be, “…always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” 

That is the only way to grow as an artist; to give up on the illusion of control and to understand that success comes from facing the conflicts existing between our desires and reality. 

For me, painting is about being and remaining as authentic as possible. That in itself is a worthy and worthwhile accomplishment.
