Andrew Stelmack Artist Bio:
As a visual artist, I like to use bold and conflicting colours, shapes and textures. To have the viewer journey with me as I explore an obsession of finding the calm within chaos. I often use strong colours to assault and yet calm the senses at the same time. As well, I combine the opposing effects of texture with smooth luminosity, within the same space, until they find a shared and harmonious balance. There also is an influence of cubism in my work as I am fascinated in how such perfect shapes as a square or rectangle can so quickly become "imperfect" from the simplest rupture or distortion. In most cases, there is no specific story behind any given artwork. My exploration of trying to create calm within chaos usually means that an artwork decides what it will become all by itself. It is my job as the artist to let that happen and not get in the way. Sometimes though, a painting can reflect a story I wish to share or is a reflection of my own emotional place at that given moment. But even when that happens, I don't necessarily want that story or emotion to be its overriding force. In the end, the most important thing is that I want each painting to have no boundaries imposed. For it to have unlimited possibilities for the viewer’s imagination to simply take hold and see where it goes. The viewer and I connecting. Without words. Sharing our own private stories, thoughts and emotions. Together.
