|I am a painter,it is what keeps me sane...or insane,however you wish to look at it.
I think art is bigger than politics and anything else, should it be a painting or music it is what moves people the most.
I have had over 20 art showings around michigan and I was in Bay City's Tall Ships as a Jack Sparrow impersonator and for the art show.I am also a historic re-inactor as John Wilkes Booth and a traveling Victorian artist at Bay City's River of Time.
I was asst director of an art galle ...morery here in town for a year but since moved on,now I am into making black and white film and painting is still my first love.
I collect antiques,and my father and I build antique reproduction furniture,I collect and have a large collection of rare books up to 200 years old,and a very large collection of antique furniture(a house full), I like intelligent conversations on philosophy,art,history,movies,musicWe are standing outside of a door, peaking through its keyhole, hoping to see what is on the other side. The inside. It's a little like staring through the skull of someone that has just put a bullet through their head. You can see their brains but you can't possibly understand what they're thinking. I want to be a master of Surprised recognition..it is the artists job to show people what the already know but don't know they know it.
I recently decided to be a "photgrapher"...haha meaning I take photos of what I think is interesting enough to be forever held prisoner behind the lens. I however, don't feel photography is nearly as rewarding to me as painting, a painting is an extension of me and will always be a part of me. Unless I alter the setting or stage the setting I will not feel in the least attached to a photo I take. My Main intention in my photography is to capture the historical world as if it hasn't been stained by the modern world. I try to show scenery in its original setting and what it was meant to be seen as, rather than the disgusting changes the modern world brings about.
