SAM THE BUTCHER contemporary art

Artist Statement


Adrienne Garcia PhotoI like to stay away from “Meaning”, as in “what does your art mean to you”. A picture is worth a thousand words for a reason. I have to take the words away. I’m looking for something deeper, beyond what could be spoken or written. I guess poetry is the closest verbal form of what I’m trying to do visually. The artistic combination of a few words can give an emotional impression that does not exist in the verbal content. I want a visual image that will give an internal emotional/intellectual impression that is not immediately obvious from the subject matter presented in the content of the painting. The non-visual image is as important.
