BJ Talor Canoutas Artist Bio:
Inside the Artist ~ Each line I draw or paint describes a precious moment in my life as an artist and as a person. The interplay with materials is a visual diary of my life experience and my contemplative journey. Most fascinating are the passages which remain visible and those that disappear through the many forces beyond our control. My art has been described as inventive, caustic, and provocative. In the quiet pursuit of my exploration of life via art, there are implied answers about the nature of art, the boundaries between life and art, and the necessity of exploring those boundaries. This has allowed me to move from conventional painting methods into experimental materials and a fascination with found objects helps connect me to the world around me and the interactions I experience each day. It is the ‘spirit’ of art that I am more interested in than style. The process itself of drawing, layering, and watching are the moments where I immerse myself in what I am creating. This is what brings me to the joyful, timeless place-free from outcome. It is a challenging, ever present balancing act between quality control, compulsive thoughts, dreaming, construction, movement, fullness and emptiness. Studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. My work has been featured at: Blue Moon Gallery Boundless Gallery Artworks Fine Art Gallery. Memberships: Artavita, Wilmington Art Association, Allied Artist of America, Inc., and Blue Moon Gallery. My published books under pen name of BJ Talor-Longpre are: Justice Repaid (a crime drama), Voices (a thriller), and Sensual Loving Desires (ebook). Several books are presently in progress.
