Video Short - A Portrait Of An Artist
A comment from the artist;
about Bio Paintings
As in centuries past, individuals and families had themselves immortalized in paintings and later in photographs.
Our desire to preserve our existence and accomplishments for future generations has not diminished...
I offer a contemporary update to the traditional portrait by allowing the client
the opportunity to fully customize the contents and color scheme of the art
piece. Yours will have your story woven into it: highlighting significant
accomplishments, important names and dates, photographs of meaningful faces or
places as well as favorite words and quotes.
The result is an abstract painting, beautiful and intriguing to look at, yet
woven within the work, a story known only to the owner.
For example on the painting 4 David this is a work commissioned from a young man who had served two tours in Iraq and was injured the same date, but different year, his mother had passed away. These
dates as well as, his platoon insignia, photos of the purple heart he received and a personal photograph he took in Iraq are all
blended together into the painting.
The painting 4 Jessica was created to remind the client of the city she loves and grew up in.
Woven throughout the painting, amongst famous Chicago city sites, is the address of her family home, her birthday and her schooling.
