Pachek -, Franklin, MA Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement
I have been called a Photo-realistic Artist, Author, Composer/Musician
I was born in Utah in 1940, and have always known, even as a child, that art would play a major role in my life. My love of travel, exploration, and studying all forms of art has been the basis behind my work. I am a published author, musician and artist.
I attempt to exemplifies my use of abstract form and gestures with detailed realism as a means of communicating emotion and thought. I strongly believe that all meaning is conveyed through our languaged reality, and I use detail and vivid colors to personify my style.
After graduating, I spent over 10 years, traveling and studying throughout Europe and Asia. As a self-taught artist, I continue to explore all uses of various medium (Oil, Acrylic, Pen and Ink, Pastels, and Digital) as used by artists around to world.
One of my most productive periods came in 1992/3 when I produced over 135 painting ranging from abstract and surrealism, to realism.
I am working on another book (soon to be published) titled "A Stage for Awareness" while continuing to produce my art.
