“Perception of reality occurs to whatever extent the mind is able to integrate its varied and sometimes disparate sensory inputs. By fracturing imagery into elemental areas of sensory input, I attempt to short circuit the viewer’s rational integration of the image long enough to allow a creative dialogue between the viewer and the image. Also, I like to paint pretty pictures.” Steven Keller
Artist Medium: Visual Arts: Oil
Skoalar presents a style in oil paining that is deeply textured and yet maintains a sharply drafted line quality. Using a rich and intense pallet, the subjects, presented in a number of abstract modes, vary from urban to natural to literary themes.
