Artist Statement:

I wanted to convey the depth of motion of the human figure, landscape, or still life both active and at rest. The result became a form of sculptural abstract imagery of not only the subject itself, but rather the time and space that it occupies in a single moment, or several single moments reducing the form into less complicated shapes. After several drafts I begin developing areas to gain the effect of either greater tension or greater flow. This combined with an edge on edge effect is what gives my work a dimensional depth. The result is a juxtaposition of organic and artificial forms giving my work a sculptural presence.

Extended Biography:
I got into painting after a number of years of drawing and/or inking for comic books. This was about 10-12 years ago. All of the comic books were independent and I don't think that any of them ever saw the light of day. After a while I had decided that comic book illustration wasn't working out for me and I had decided to go back into painting (which I hadn't done since college about 5 years earlier). I had studied a number of different artists' styles and ultimately started dabbling in cubism and futurism. I found that I wanted to paint like Umberto Boccioni sculpted. I particularly enjoyed the sculpture "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space". I've done a painting of it called "Ode to Boccioni". Over time I have fused these ideas as well as several other styles into my own style of painting which is not really cubism, and not exactly futurism, but these descriptions will do for the time being. I had started a painting blog http://blog.websterwebart.com after completing "Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days", a project for a local art gallery. Since then I have joined the Daily Painters Marketplace http://marketplace-daily-art.blogspot.com/, the Daily Painters Abstract http://dailypaintersabstract.blogspot.com/ the best known of the daily painters galleries DailyPainters.com.
