Description

Working to create a vision that is improvisational, intuitive, contemporary and universal, I use abstraction as a mode to reflect upon social and natural environments. The process and material qualities of the medium create a journey of exploration and invention rather than a predetermined statement. As a painter, I’ve become particularly engaged with notions of essence. What is the essence of my message and goals? What is the essence of painting? I am also fascinated by the intrinsic visual and tactile qualities of paint as paint, how sensitive brushwork, movement, surface, color and light modulations can express intuitive, analytical and mystical ideas. I want to make paintings that could not be made with any other medium. My goal is to encourage empathy, love and kindness through artworks that pulsate with their own energy and life. I want to make paintings that have a heart beat, that breathe with vitality and mystery, that ask all questions and offer up answers hidden within like a heuristic prophet. You are invited to make your own discoveries. --Bruce Thorn
