Cagney King • ARTIST STATEMENT:
The images and visions come often and burn within me until released with a passion of line, colour and texture. This passion was ignited deep within me early in my life. The free flowing drawings and explosions of primary colours of my youth led to an exploration of my inner creative self that continues today. Art is my statement, my existence, my breath and my mark on this world. My current work is taking me on a journey of
Currently I am exploring the exaggerated human expressions associated with life’s turmoils and tragedies as well as the celebrations in contemporary, figurative works.My work encompasses a push and pull with mediums and textures that take me on a journey of discovery with each painting. The journey is a path determined both by my desire to communicate the idea, and the paintings desire to exist in a certain energy and light. I currently utilize collage, marble dust, sand, cement, graphite, tempera, acrylic, oil and even cat litter to communicate the appropriate textural messages and invitations for the viewer. I am working constantly and experimenting endlessly to find the perfect mix of mediums and culminations on the canvas to create my art.
