Below are the artist statement for each series along with how the series came about.
One of my favorite stories about Matisse was on his pricing. A collector came to his studio to buy a painting from Matisse. Matisse painted a beautiful outline of women in blue paint in a few minutes. When the collector asked why should he pay so much for a painting that took only a few moments. Matisse replied," To paint in this way has taken me a lifetime not a few moments."
The Collector understood and walked out with the beautiful blue painting done by Matisse.
We never really know what the artist has been through to paint the work she does. It is a mystery.
Robert Frost- Swinger's of BirchTrees
Statement- Paintings using the rhythms of the paintbrush movement, to support the meter of Robert Frost’s work.
This series of abstract paintings and the poems of Robert Frost’s work together to entice the viewer to enter a new way of thinking or expanding their imagination about New England. Robert Frost’s work speaks to us using poetry in a fantastic abstract way; these abstract paintings support his more abstract work.
Frost developed his own theory of poetry, which is reflected in his verse and teaching. Frost’s goal was to use the everyday rhythm of speech in verse. He rejected the stilted patterns and rhymes of the 19th century poets. He also did not care for free verse in which there is no rhyme or meter. In one famous example, the "Mending Wall," he used a situation of repairing a wall between two farms, a situation common to the farm life of New England, to convey an idea which he believed held true in the life of all people.
Klementovich -This group of Paintings explores the edge detection of objects and landscapes that depict Frost’s poems. My work is influenced by Basquiat’s painting in the use hieroglyphic like brush strokes. One person who saw this group of paintings claimed that the palette was tropical for paintings that represent the cold New England. Perhaps I am like the Gaugain of New England with his Fauvism like colors! This work is showing at the Carver Hill Gallery, Please feel free to pop over to see the quality of the work.
