ag_artist_statement : I have the compulsion and need to create something visually appealing to my own eyes, so I experiment with color and shapes to produce works of art. My goal with each new painting is to get to the point where I feel that adding something to the painting would feel superfluous and taking anything away from the painting would feel incomplete. I don’t begin a painting with a specific idea. Instead, I begin with a stroke of color, and from that first stroke, the painting develops itself. I never know or imagine the final appearance of the painting, but I know when I feel satisfied and it is time to stop. Then I begin the next new painting, and the process repeats itself.
