Convolver (Pastel, 9 x 12, 2017)

Done this year, in fact, just recently. I keep devolving back in time with constant references to the 20th century which I integrate with my current sensibility. I am not sure what that means but I keep working in either an abstract way blended in with what I think of as figural expressionism. Kirchner, Malevich, and Krasner currently have an enormous pull on my thinking.

About mmgilbert

I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
