The expression “Natural” can be utilized to a selection of subjects. I’m composing about “Natural Art“, and what that signifies to me, as men and women have tagged me….The Natural Artist. I have always been additional snug outside, I just desire nature to partitions. As a child my Mother had to drag me inside every evening. I lived just up the hill from a swamp, I know my fascination was born there in that magical swamp. I have really strong beliefs in aiding our atmosphere, and worries for the future of our world.
   

When you consider of the expression organic and natural, you clearly initially consider of produce, that has been organically developed devoid of chemical compounds. I consider when referring to Art with the expression Natural hooked up, we obviously will conjure up photos in our minds of natural searching things,  a lush landscape, a gnarled tree, or a bunch of freshly picked flowers, probably even a basket of develop.   

I first thought about the principle of “Natural Art” although going for walks the creek mattress powering my house in Malibu, Ca. I desired to capture on canvas the feel of  hiking the trails, or discovering the creek. I desired to convey my response  to nature, a thing that had a truly innate natural glimpse and come to feel to it. To consider it a step even more, I desired to present the fundamentals of nature that we see daily, that are so strikingly common to us, and their marriage to time.  

I’m  intrigued by micro assemblages, tucked just below the area, abnormal concealed worlds full in them selves. Macro and micro organic and natural happenings are ongoing frequently, natural occurrences that also have to do with the passage of time. Time reveals by itself via rotted wooden, new progress, death, strata on the aspect of a mountain wall, all these things present the evolution of our Earth, organic markings of the passage of time.     Now, blend these  with emotions of emotion,  physical motion of an artist responding to nature, and you have what I call….Natural Art. It is an artists vision of nature, natures motion via time, and that particular artists emotions, and responses. I want the viewer to re-stay an atmospheric memory in their marriage to nature and my artwork.

Natural art can also be termed “Natural” by the materials an artist is working with. Artists use organic and natural pigments, leaves, branches, berries, stones, and so forth. An assemblage of natural materials, a sculpture in  wood  or marble, stones stacked/positioned  along aspect a river……..or even crop circles, they are all illustrations of what I would expression Natural Art. 

 I uncover that developing abstract art with an “Natural” sensitivity in head lends by itself to discuss of the feelings included, instead than painting a very sunset that we all realize to be a sunset. The real looking landscape artist discusses the splendor of a forest they are painting. I am centered on the feelings and emotions that my art conveys, atmospheric memories relived. Natural art reeks of a specific familiarity, a thing really fundamental, and vital in our daily life. My paintings express the organic and natural complexities that encompass us, often about serenity, often intricate layering techniques of decay  or destruction. All of existence responds to the primitive, tangible, evolution of our world, some just a small nearer to the source. Natural art is rudimentary, it is vital, it can be primordial, supportive and important. It might express by itself in a piece of  raku fired ceramic, a collection of twigs, or paint on a canvas, twisted, layered, and textured. Natural art is all all around us. Glance at the automobile bumper rusted in a stunning swirl of burnt sienna, or the crimson paint peeling off the fence, they are all illustrations of a natural art getting effected by time. Natural art is and always has been a section of our at any time shifting world.
