Myths - Joe Papagoda

Joe Papagoda's conceptual artworks explore expressive power in lieu of figurative suggestions by combining the intense emotional aspect of color theory with dynamic fluid imagery. In further rejection of figurative imagery, these artworks are created in conjunction with conceptual, narrative titles to serve in part as a mechanism meant to empower creative vision in the mind of the viewer - as if a story were being read - the artworks are not intended to form any specific depiction and offer a plethora of hidden biomorphic shapes and intricate details to supplement the mind's creative thought.
Often created with the painting against the ground, the artist begins painting by hand with brush applied directly on the canvas to build a foundation of soft and sometimes heavy brush strokes. A custom mix of fluid acrylics or other mixed mediums are applied over this foundation offering great control over the final organic composition.
