Phil Volk, Fort Worth Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement It is difficult to encapsulate into words, what I do and why I do it. My love for art and creating art runs deeply. I explore not only the visual aspect but also the philosophical part of art and the creative process. Every aspect of my endeavor I thoroughly enjoy. I enjoy drawing just as much as painting. I also enjoy sculpture very much and am hoping to explore it more in the future. My work can be whimsical, funny, serious and dark . My style has evolved into using Surrealist Automatic Drawing techniques with my own unique style. I use acrylic on canvas to present abstract paintings that I hope will challenge the viewer. My works are born by combining my unique designs with my own take on abstract expressionism and cubism. I have been creating and selling art since 1997. Each painting is an original work of art that you can be proud to own.
