These forms represent a synaptic moment; a spark of awareness inspired by the intricacies of nature and the physical movement of matter through space. A lack of verbal communication implies a need to visually convey my passion for acting on creative impulses. Through experimenting with pigment I gain an understanding of the seemingly arbitrary nature of its disposition. The pigment’s fluidity lacks control; however, it captures a moment suspended in space, and thus provides the foundation for an aesthetic experience by way of form, space, and color.

“Presumably oneself is not so unique that, if one organizes it so it is meaningful to oneself, there won’t be some other people who will also find it meaningful to look at and experience that way.” – Robert Motherwell

 

 

I came across this artist via Bobby Solomon’s blog, The Fox Is Black. Theo Altenberg uses an interesting technique of allowing oil pigment to interact via planar forms juxtaposed on one another. This work resonates quite well with me as it provides the viewer with an experience based solely on preconception. His pieces are quite beautiful.
