ARTIST"S PERSONAL STATEMENT:
For as long as I can remember, I have had what I can only describe as a yearning to release my imagination and create. I have fought that calling for most of my life because of fear and maybe some insecurity. There is always a risk of ridicule when someone "puts themself out there". I have finally come to a point in my life where concerns about what others think of me and the fear of falling under their harsh scrutiny are NOT going to keep me from putting myself out there. While many of my creations won't resonate with "the masses", each has special significance to me. If you don't like them, that is fine but they are truly "children of my thoughts and feelings" and hopefully, by sharing them here, some can find their way to kindred spirits with whom they can connect. If that is not you, that's ok too.
Vincent lives in the state of Florida in the United States of America and although he works with numerous mediums, his preferred platform is digital painting. Being self-taught, Vincent looks for inspiration through introspection, intuition, imagination, and personal experiences. A former radio announcer, college instructor, and corporate trainer, Vincent currently works in public service for the US federal government. He has traveled throughout Europe, South America and to the Far East and lived on the Victory Base Complex (VBC) near Baghdad, Iraq for nearly a year as a contractor with the US State Department in support of reconstruction efforts during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Vincent views his art as a critical life balance mechanism and communication vehicle and describes it as a therapist, stress manager, and at times, an obsession. He sees his art as an old friend that has always been there when needed and as a mirror providing insight and revelation.
Vincent's mission as an artist is to connect with others and provoke thought. He says that being able to stir an emotion, generate a reaction, or inspire someone is a way to connect with them. An image has the potential to create a connection even across the expanse of time itself.
