.I simply paint to search and discover. My abstract art seeks to explore shapes as a method of examining perspective and interpretation. Some of my abstractions explore the search for art that has meaning different to each observer and not tied to intent. Some modern abstractions use ink, resin and a pour technique to create art that makes itself and is not tied to intent. My shapes are an attempt to present perspective that has the same intent, that which you perceive. Finding a way to fancy up my intent has become a focus and an escape from description is what every observer of art seeks. The museum or gallery description and the words of the documentary have little to do with art and the art lover or buyer. The personal connection is part emotional and part intellectualism which can’t be put into words.
The artist has only one intent. To put what is perceived as being, soul and beauty into the work. It is the being and soul and beauty of the observer that counts, however and neither can be put into words. The artist and the musician and the poets speak in images. Words are tough.

My art started as an escape from my structured life as a Product Engineer for Youdknowthem Corporation. It became much more than that to me. Art’s a long term project without a resume, undertaken too late, but intensely researched.  The engineer’s aim is to push the envelope so that was always the aim here. I am obsessed, taken over by art, poetry and music. To me they are the same. It is the same flow, stream of thought, that creates art, poetry, and music. All three are visual.

I started Artvilla in 1997. I figured I’d just be the Magazine of Modern Art and discover me. Modern Art Paintings and Images has been up for twenty years, this year. Images were new back then and Google was not around. In the last twenty years, this ol’ engineer has hit keyword after keyword with this art. By now a million or two have scrolled by , or  read my poems in the night, or have downloaded my music. It has been an interesting journey.Art represents the pain, the beauty, and the search. That’s what it always represents for anyone who reaches.

My art?

It is the skeleton

of the fish

tied to the side

of Hemingway’s


I am the old man,

the internet,

is the sea

I visit my gallery pages and the galleries and follow many on Social Media. I enjoy hearing from them and artists. I can update their pages, I’m available. This website could grow. It has a chance to be useful. Where do we take this?  This index is huge now and it’s like I should say “We” , and that’s how I feel about this project, but the we is, as my late mother would say when she called, “It’s just me”, Mr. open to suggestion Jackson, outsider, amazing do everything Dave, looking in the window of the art.

My “Art Galleries of the World” series has several purposes

  1. It’s good for artists because they can visit the galleries, like their social media pages and see art trends around the world.
  2.  It’s good for the galleries because artists and collectors can follow their pages.
  3.  It’s good for the collector because of the ability to see art products around the world.
  4. It’s good for me because I can show art to the galleries, first my own, and soon others.
  5. It could lead to sales in art for galleries and, hopefully for ArtforsalOriginal.
  6. It’s bold, brash, and is indeed an “Installation”. Nobody else could do this alone.
  7. It’s created for the greater good. It has an ideal of wanting to serve the art community, wanting to be a bridge.
