About Bert

My paintings arise out of a lifelong fascination with the world of nature. As a child, I was continually  making collections of flowers, leaves, rocks, etc., much to the consternation of my mother who could never quite understand her son’s preoccupation. Now, it is the love of looking at and experiencing viscerally the  beauty that surrounds us, and the  need to express and share those emotional experiences that fuel my work.  “In beauty there is truth.”

Conceptually, I try to emphasize the creative process of painting as a tool for personal  transformation.  I always felt that art was alive in me somewhere, but for much of my life I was too blocked with self-doubt and criticism to allow it to come forth. As I worked through the layers over the years, I have gained a  more positive attitude toward myself and my work, allowing me to more fully explore whatever gifts I have been given.

“In the face of beauty, we are silenced, because beauty expresses silence.  In lavishing attention on the objects of the artwork, the consciousness of the artist can touch something divine, some transcendental quality, and that transcendent element now resides in the artwork.  How do we know it?  We feel it.  We experience it.  Our heart responds to that sublime quality  the artist infused into the work....  A work of art is like a visual form of prayer.”

I can see that you're totally genuine in the things you say, and i'm extremely perceptive, as well as naturally skeptical and cynical, so that's saying a lot! (yeah, i'm a charmer, too... ) and as someone with an absolutely insane medical history, i know how much it sucks to be laying there in that gown having people do weird things to you... But you still smile. Seriously, beautiful ain't a big enough word for you. Not by a longshot. ordering viagra from canada Cdenic 1 year ago 8 reply share remove flag for spam block user unblock user see all all comments (27) sign in or sign up now to post a comment!
