Joel A Conner/ Expressionist Landscape Painter
My artist Statement
I have always been intrigued by the unknown. It drives me to explore. I love to find new gems from unknown artists and musicians. And I have always found joy in making something new. It drives me to pick up my paintbrush, guitar, pen, violin, etc.
I love painting nature and color as a microcosm of life itself – trees reaching for light, bent by abuse, and craving nourishment. I am drawn by beauty mixed with mystery. Pure realism or impressionism has never had great appeal to me. The Expressionist Style gives me more freedom as approach the canvas. The blank canvas is an unknown world and I find myself searching out mystery rooted in reality. When I create I feel that I am doing what I was made to do, whether or not anyone likes it or can understand it. I believe that there is a bridge between my art and those who understand it and appreciate it and those in this world who are suffering. I want my art and indeed myself to be a beautiful (yet broken) bridge. More to come at www.beautifulbridge.com
