Thoughts before a show in 2014
Fine Art PAINter
I find Artist Statements to be a pretentious affairs, I dislike them as much as writing my
own biography. It is bad enough that I am an Artist, so here is a little prose I wrote to share
a bit about how I feel about my world and my life and the drive to paint and express myself
I find Peace in my orange shoes. . .
Under the sky of mixed blues, indigos, violets, greens, yellows and reds.
I see Art in the movement. . . The dance of little bird wings.
Death of sunrise to the birth of sunsets. . . I observe my world of contradictions. . .
Thus, I live for my vision to paint in a world of many languages under a sky of many colors. . .
Languages like prayers, songs, and whispers. . . Heard, ignored and forgotten.
Many loud and vocal voices that shout to be heard above the thunder of echoes.
I live among strangers on broken islands, shattered by history, tradition, and culture. . .
Strangers seeking to live free under the same sky colored differently by belief and ideas. . .
Beliefs and Ideas to express and say who they are. . . To find a reflection of themselves in
others who agree. . . Or the simple desire to outshout those who disagree.
I was born on such a strange island surrounded by history of a people seeking to break
the bonds of slavery.
Still I am a foreigner to many things that dwell on these shattered lands.
My mind still thugs at invisible chains but my eyes see the many colors of the sky,
and movement as beautiful and inspiring as the little birds who fly high and gravity free.
My name is Nazaire and I was born on such an Island called Earth. . .
I became a painter seeking to capture the many colors of the sky and the dance of little birds.
Seeking to understand cultures, traditions, and people. . .
To understand why we all bleed red to ignore that we share shelter under the same sky.
I seek to express that sky, our home, our lives, our traditions, our faiths.
In paintings that speak in colors that say we all have a word for Pain. . .
Suffer. . . Hardship. . . Love. . . Family. . . Life. . . Death. . . And Tears.
Our words, our languages. . .
Our statements the expressions of an eye's opinion on the world.
Words like blinding colors of the Sun and stars.
They speak of our ways, during our days we speak to find similar meaning under one sky.
We are not from Mars, we are born, one people. . .
Still we express the color blue in many different ways.
