Karsten Stier, Port Fairy Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I like to capture the fleeting glimpse that is usually experienced when a particular moment is seen in that first instant. I’ve studied all the major techniques and styles and have always found that sticking with one particular artistic style or technique as being too restrictive. Being self-taught has allowed me to bend the ‘rules’, and push beyond the boundaries. To experiment a lot more and incorporate the fusion of several techniques and styles. This gives me the freedom to remain more true to the mood of the artwork. . .
