For me as an artist, Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color, and line to create compositions which exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. I focus on a universe of the mind and raw emotion; Whether it's mindbending, nightmarish, fantastical or even erotic, I call upon abstract art, abstract expressionism, digital art as well as photo study to express my views of culture and the human condition.
I have given this art movement a name "Millenium creed." I came by this name in two parts "Millenium" because this form of art embodies all the previous forms of art over the last millennium, Painting, the three-dimensional elements of sculpture, textures from textile art, photography, photo study and photo modeling and now digital art. The second part"Creed" Is because I see art as a form of spirituality. I feel art in its many expressive forms reveals the inner nature of a person that some refer to as the spirit. In coming to art at the age of 40 with a lifetime of experience and even personal demons, I have seen how art can allow a person to express themselves far beyond words. I feel the look on fathers faces holding their infants for the first time can do more to express that moment than any explanation he could give however in my works I strive to go even deeper than that. I pose the question of what does an emotion or feeling look like beyond human body language and facial expression. It is my opinion that this can only be expressed in the abstract by creating a depiction of augmented reality. I feel expressing art this way is of the utmost importance because in my life experience we all live in some form of augmented reality, it consists of our core beliefs, personal opinions, and experiences. I have found this to be true because in a static reality a spoken word could never invoke a person to anger as it is nothing but a simple sound but in our augmented reality, we interpret this sound to be a weapon that can harm. These are the type of moments I seek to capture in my artwork. What if every word, sound, and feeling had color, line, shape, and texture that filled our field of vision and reality? This is what is at the heart of "Millenium creed" using every technique and the modern artistic tool to give a visual interpretation to our inner worlds and bring about a new understanding between people.
I have undertaken the task to document and feature every work I create in my ongoing book series The Book of Lost Verses and my annual volumes of Codex Venerorum Abstracta. I have done this to ensure my artwork will live on hundreds of years past my time. Providing a frame of reference few artist have ever offered along with a high level of collectability that is not controlled by the art mainstream. Much of what drives everyone's knowledge about an artist lay in the amount of documentation on that artist, and no one can provide more factual information about an artist than the artist himself.
The question of collectability comes up all the time when referencing a digital artist and open edition prints, and I want to put this issue to rest with a little conventional wisdom. Baseball cards, Records, Toys and now even 80s tech are all things that were mass produced with no individual certificates or signatures. In the end, collectibility is based on time passed, What we know about the creator of the item, documentation on the subject and how many are surviving in circulation. I have provided documentation in the form of 11 book titles featuring my artwork on the open market and item rarity will be controlled by the fact that Mark Humes Gallery is the only source of my official artwork.
