About The Artist

Artist Statement

Artist statement
Painting is a place where I go to be small. To be an observer of forces much greater than myself& to be humbled by the experience of my greatest teacher- nature. For this reason I work directly from life. I ask questions about perception, time, space and myself as an artist. Standing alone, I strive to look outside myself & listen. I want to shed what I know & reach into the paint & grasp a new honesty. I am in a constant balancing act between searching & forgetting; asking & listening: conscious & unconscious.
This current body of work continues to push the boundaries of paint and its potential for figurative content and not just the boundaries of illusion. I draw inspiration from an abstract puzzle of shapes, silence, breath and the constant unfolding of beauty & humanity within every subject. I see not just through the lens of form making but also through the lens of pattern -creating Pieces of light, shadow and intensity merging into one.

Thank you,
Douglas Andelin
