Art connects me to the world. It nourishes the ebb and flow of intimacy between myself, others, and our shared surroundings. My experience of art exists as a vast web of internalized relationships. I maintain an archive of these visual and conceptual impulses in commercially fabricated file folders. These are the folders I convert into surface grounds for drawing, painting, writing, mark making. My strategy for the creation of marks begins with the practice of counting using tally marks and
My work is the practice by which I engage with others in the expanding conversation centered on the evolution of human creativity. Engagement, for me, exists as an multi-layered, evolving set of communication strategies. From the immediate and improvisational, that is found in the Markings Project (shown on this site) to the ephemeral qualities of the Ring Project (visit danteventresca.com) all my work is centered on shared, visual experience.
The work exhibited on this site is taken from my Markings Project. This on-going series of works on paper focuses on the physical power of mark making. Each work sells for $650.
