Artist Statement
“From the very beginning, as a young 1960s Black Expressionist aRTist, I knew I did not just want to do aRT but to change aRT”. In 1971, I wanted to crash old barriers and define new horizons while contributing to my beloved Visual aRT. I broke with canvas and graphic papers and sought a unique style, theme, and expression to distinguish my aRT from all other aRTist's works. By 1977, the revolutionary Reverse aRT Technique fusing color to a smooth acrylic polymer panel was born. aCRYLIC Fusion aRTs Medium became my single signature medium across five decades of the Creative Continuum. Today, I seek to pass aCRYLIC Fusion techniques to Next-Gen visionary aRTisans. wb2021©™
