John Killmaster (painting, enamel, polymer clay, mixed media)

My interest as an artist is to witness to the gift of life and vision: my artistic endeavor is a search of something ineffable – that which cannot be spoken, but I continue to pursue an expressive, sublime visual statement in color and shape – perhaps beyond reach. This ongoing process, at times, transcends to an ethereal level wherein all else – the mundane, the routine of life – is put aside to experience a wondrous time of joy and fulfillment. This time of “oneness” with the painting, fleeting as it is, bonds me to picture making, and so too does the excitement of discovery during the painting process. The subject I paint serves only as a starting point, thus my work appears diverse, but color, light, brush work and structure are my true subjects,
