Tripp Braden, Williamsfield, OH Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I create art to share my vision of the world with you, the viewer. This mission includes creating compelling artwork that allows you to experience nature through my eyes. I want you to be moved by what you see. I do this by using classic artist’s tools such as, color, lighting, texture, composition, and imagination. My goal is to produce artwork and photography that captures the spirit and the art of wildlife and nature.
I create mixed media that combines digital technology combined with traditional art media to shift your perceptions of what is possible through modern art and expression. I combine the best of current digital technology with the materials and craftsmanship of earlier generations of fine artists. I use both computer and canvas to create individual works of art that capture the emotion and energy of this time in history.
I have several projects to convert earlier sketches and photos into larger mix media paintings to be featured in galleries regionally over the next several months. I’m developing a series of paintings that feature the big cats and exploring how to provide several non-profits with ways of connecting with their constituencies through art.
