“Art making is my attempt to make order of chaos, so in this sense, my work is observational in nature. What I perceive must be simplified, readjusted, and then the personal image surfaces, disinterested to a large degree. I think that any subject looked at with a careful mind’s eye, becomes significant. The Art object itself is not as important to me as the resulting conversations that occur with my audience.
“Within the process of the relief print, I find limitations that inspire me. No matter how many blocks I print, I expect the print image to be direct and maintain clarity. The traditions of the block print help me maintain control of my ideas.
“In painting and drawing, I find a spontaneous confrontation with the medium.” --Robert Patierno
