My vision for visual art is to create exquisite original one of a kind oil paintings
with dream-like qualities and beautiful colour balance and movement. To make an
oil painting I choose imagery from pop culture and combine with other ideas on one
canvas so it is a true reflection of the world. Sometimes it is painting models in an expressionistic style while adding surreal elements around the composition while
other works include using an ancient renaissance grid technique of enlarging
photography onto a much bigger canvas. Also, my work is inspired by Music
and Vegan culinary arts. If I get the O.A.C. grant I would create a series of oil paintings
based upon existing ink drawings which would form the blueprint for the canvas.
These drawings include surreal film strip images and various Toronto street scenes
including markets and stores. There would be bright colours with dynamic harmony
and intricate brush work to render detail. When completed, the brilliant works would
be like looking at a three-dimensional stereo image into another dimension where
various elements in time and space can be rearranged in never before seen compositions.
While painting listening to music is also desired because of the ability to help
concentrate and focus upon the artwork being produced. When completed, I intend
to have a series of museum quality pieces available to the public at a gallery which
are designed to last eons. My work is also influenced by my cultural
education at university where I obtained my degree in drawing and painting and studied
a variety of classes including science, history and various studio work-shops.
