Compassionate Warrior Emerging, 16 x 20 inch acrylic and plastic button on canvas board. I've been watching Rick Bartow, a world famous contemporary Native American artist, work on two totems for the Snithsonian. We've been talking about masks and spiritual transformation. His work inspired this piece, the first work that I have painted in seven months. I just wanted to put a brush to canvas and see what happened. There is a lot of buildup on the canvas that is just not visible. Check out Ricks work on the internet.
Gib creates original artwork that has been labled both objective and non-objective. He is a self-taught artist. So one might consider his paintings as art brut or outsider art. The compositions range from abstract to thematic expressions of the environment and other societal/philosophical conditions affecting the world today. His paintings are often humorous and always thought provoking.
