I've read that a thoughtful ancient Greek used three criteria in his evaluation of a work of art:

 1. Does it indicate a level of skill by the artist? (craftsmanship);

 2. Does it provide beauty? (composition); and

 3. Is it interesting? (creativity).

That fair academic evaluation, I think, follows an initial, emotional - favorable or negative - reaction by the viewer.  That initial reaction should be spontaneous, and not something contrived by the artist. So, as I selectively manipulate 'real world' elements into a piece of artwork, I try to stay aware of craftsmanship, composition, and interest; but leave the emotional response to you.

 

Nearly all my artworks are acrylic - and other water based media - on panels I fabricate from salvaged hollow-core doors and other recycled building materials.  I like the idea of windows and doors conveying us – visually and/or physically – between the security of our familiar spaces to the less certain worlds beyond.
