Description An experiment in painting without purpose. The idea is to start applying paint with no preconceived ideas, to just let the painting develop as it will. Once shapes begin to emerge, then those shapes are worked.
Tim Stringer, Newark Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I believe that art should be enjoyable. It can inspire and evoke emotions. That is what I try and do with my art. Evoke a mood or feeling. Sometimes though, a pretty picture is just a pretty picture and that is a good thing.
I began drawing in my early teens. I've worked in oils, acrylics, Prismacolor, pastels and other traditional media. In the late 90s I began experimenting with digital. My methods are traditional but instead of paint and canvas, I use a computer. The screen becomes my canvas, the mouse/pen my brush. Each image is built up brush stroke by stoke.
I like to experiment and sometimes that means pure digital manipulation or the fusion of digital manipulation with more traditional methods. Filters, lighting effects, it is all fair game.
And if you're wondering what happened to my figurative work, they are here.
