We are husband/wife artists in Palm Coast, Florida.
We creatively collaborate on Painting/Assemblage figurative art, incorporating whimsy, elegance, & stylization.....a mixed media narrative art form emerged with its own identity and style with a marked element of whimsy. The result is both contemporary and classical, “quirky” and elegant. It draws inspiration from innovators of stylization like Modigliani and continues the grand tradition of mixed media masters such as Gustav Klimt.
We have endeavored to take the techniques of figurative painting, collage and embellishment to a new level, merging them into one striking image. In effect, illustration and assemblage are fused as a harmonious unity.
This piece is glazed with an acrylic over coat replacing the glass of traditional framing producing a piece that can stand on its own as frameless art (or be framed at the client’s discretion).
It is accompanied by an original story adding to its individual identity.
"Amber presents a paradox: she is only at rest when
she is in motion. She contacts an inner stillness only
when she is swirling, swaying, or undulating with a
universal energy. Amber has an unusual perception
of which she is constantly aware. Whereas many see
themselves surrounded by solid and static objects,
she sees a continuous flow of diverse energy patterns
that constantly interact to form temporary formations.
Others call them objects, people, and situations. They
give these momentary “shapes” names in a vain, futile
attempt to make them stationary. Amber doesn’t
believe in names. She moves with this incessant vortex
by which she’s surrounded and effortlessly becomes
immersed and one with it. One may well ask “how can
someone function in the “real” world with such an
impractical viewpoint?” She doesn’t. She only seems
to. Like all of us to some extent she has two selves.
One she presents to the outer world. The other is her
inner self, safe from eyes that don’t understand. In
the innermost sanctuary of her heart she privately and
uninhibitedly moves and unites with the cosmic dance
of existence. In that sacred space of movement for one
instant she is no longer Amber, she is perfect energy
in MOTION! "
