Full bio and CV including links to important artworks, articles, and presentations.
The experience of the sublime is to be looked for in art. Art integrates senses, emotions, and thought. The sublime in art elevates our sensory experience, heightens and taps our emotional potential, and furthers our knowledge. The sublime in art can give us a moral to the story, a stance towards living. At its best, the sublime in art inspires awe in our human potential and gives us a path to evolve as a whole being and as a species.
Once a painting is done I want it to find a home with a great person or persons. Towards that the collector has good leverage by how much they care, who they are, and what they do. If you love a work contact me and let's discuss it and make collecting it a reality. For a major work I recommend that I personally bring and install it or we get a fine art shipping company to do it. Smaller works I send USPS. I want you to be elated by the experience, whatever Newberry you own you can use the price towards an exchange.
