Statement is a self-taught contemporary, abstract expressionist artist. He creates bright and colorful original digital paintings where everything is drawn directly into the computer (no scans or photography) using a digital pen on a touch sensitive tablet. Gary uses color with a depth and sense of abstraction that lures the viewer to experience the artwork through the color combinations, pattern, movement and brush strokes the work is inspired by what Gary perceives in his surroundings along with his thoughts, moods, feelings, conflicts and contradictions - and puts them directly into the painting. His unique style gives each viewer a different personal experience that deepens over time
Favorite Art Quote: " I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for" - Georgia O'Keeffe
About Creativity: "All creativity comes out of inner spaciousness. Once the creation has happened and something has come into form, you have to be vigilant so that the notion of "me" or "mine" does not arise. If you take credit for what you accomplished, the ego has returned, and the spaciousness has become obscured." - Eckhart Tolle from A New Earth
