My friend and fellow artist Lance Green describes himself as a Colorist and an Expressionist, but more than that he is a Storyteller conjuring images that take the viewer beyond the mere skin and bone of the subject and into the soul that lies hidden beneath. The greater part of his works are self portraits of sorts but all are universal in their application, expressing the human paradox of grace and despair. There is an ambiguous optimism implied in the work that speaks an invocation for subject and viewer in the artist’s secret language that brings one to rest deeply in an ultimate redemption of all things. I agree.
CHUCK AND GEORGE
Brian Scott and Brian Jones are great and edgy artists working in multiple disciplines. Each creates their own work individually and work together under the name Chuck and George. They are also fellow gallery artists represented by Ro2 Art in Dallas, TX.
