dale voelker Artist Bio:
My intention with my art is to visualize the mind and the multiple layers upon layers of experiences that make up who we are. I am interested in the struggle between consciousness and what lies underneath; how the two interact and come together. Sometimes these experiences are subtle like a color gradation or they are screaming in dark purple. As a boy I was always fascinated with artwork series I saw in churches, which depicted the stations of the cross (the steps leading to Jesus being crucified.) They were usually abstract in nature, but revealed the psychology of the gruesome event. That was my introduction to art. I treat the raw canvas more as fabric foundation that absorbs the paint and allows me to build the piece with overlays of washes, stains and marks using a variety of media including acrylics, ink, dirt, oil and wax. I run a graphic design business that caters to entertainment, technology, non-profits, education and retail.
