The pleasure I receive from creating works of Art is like no other I can explain. It's more than a feeling I wish to express in such a way that viewers can sense in every possible way. I used to think it was just a hobby, until I discovered it's so much more. It's a gift I want to always share, plainly visible and decipherable.
I started my interest in the Arts as early as I can remember. I began the practice of drawing and creating in many ways on my own, encouraged by my very supportive immediate family, friends and elementary school teachers.
Music has always been a huge inspiration for me in expressing visually, as is dance.
The work I love creating more than any other is in the Expressionistic style because I enjoy the challenge of finding the ability to express emotions within myself and those of others. I do this figuratively, through the use of people presence more than other subjects by showing faces, how the body is affected by emotions and a surrounding mood in some pieces where the vision appears complete with a background scape. Speaking of visions, most of my work is extracted from the sleep-wake state, where I'm awakening from a very realistic feeling within the subconscious. It is the most common denominator, if you will. Being able to capture as much detail as I can recall from these visions, and interpret their meanings as I create, is a feeling like no other. Best of all, there is no camera in creation which can capture what only we can see from within!
Anatomy Illustration was one of the subjects I enjoyed studying since an early age, as well. The human figure continues to be one of my favorite subjects. Naturalistic themes are another, where landscapes and close-up renderings come to life. As far as painting and drawing styles go, I keep mostly within the Expressionistic, Figurative and Surreal with an apparent stroke of Abstract. Sometimes combining unexpected styles, such as the surreal and classical, a pleasing twist may surface where tradition meets modern-contemporary.
Photography is an insatiable hobby I quickly grew to enjoy in most recent years. Some of the Artistic Photography I enjoyed capturing and sharing can be seen on Fotoblur.com @ http://fotoblur.com/portfolio/Sarge7
After many travels and pursuits, moving to faraway places and discovering the world is not so big after all, I returned to my hometown in North Jersey, where I currently reside and work doing what I Love in Art, surrounded by the family I Love!
I hope you'll enjoy my progress and share with those who are passionate about the Arts and Emotive Expressionism.
