Larry Mansker, Eureka Springs,AR Member Since July 2017 Artist Statement I have been making art for over seven decades. Primarily two dimensional paintings and drawings.
My reason for making art was to tell a story. My story or help someone else tell their stories.
Galleries and books helped find homes for my personal creations. Advertising and public relations agencies as well as architects and designers helped find clients who needed their stories told.
The building boom — especially commercial buildings— needed paintings for all those modern style buildings. Large abstract paintings with a geometric motif worked well in those geometric shaped lobbies.
Figures have always been a favorite painting subject for me; so I put the two subjects together in my "Romance Series".— Figures rendered in and abstract style —. This collection was also inspired by the recent cultural acceptance of diversity in life styles.
