Rolf Veh, London, Ontario Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement Thank you for visiting my website.
From a young age, my interests have been mostly in the areas of health and fitness. As time went on, I became attracted to bodybuilding as a fitness pursuit, together with a keen interest in metal and woodworking mediums.
My passion remained in the woodworking field where, over the past years, creations of numerous male and female bodybuilding stances have evolved in wood. I have since enjoyed digital photography, manipulating my original creations through the digital medium, bringing me to Imagekind, which will now allow me to display some of my more creative artwork through the photographic medium.
I consider myself fortunate in having had a father who was a brilliant, although relatively unknown European artist, and who, for many of the war years, actually sustained his family in every way, by painting and selling his artwork during Europe's darkest days. His passion for the arts remained with me throughout my life - albeit in a different medium - but it is only now, in later life, that I am finally venturing into the unknown by displaying my work to a great part of our world. It is hoped that my type of creativity will resonate throughout the minds of those of you who are passionate about all forms of art, and those who appreciate the complexity of the human body which has, through my digitally manipulated art form, brought this to a new dimension.
My art will be displayed through Imagekind on a rotational basis throughout the year, so should you choose to purchase, it is recommended an order be placed early. You may also contact me directly if you find the item you are interested in is unavailable on the gallery.
I consider my art as a tribute to bodybuilders, in particular, who have brought their physique to perfection, and I invite those athletes to consider having me create new age art for them from their favourite personal athletic pictures. I know they will not be disappointed.
From time to time, original work may be purchased when available.
