There is never enough of, support for
Obsession & Vaso Ancestorio
work in mixed medium format. My photography preference
at the moment is in black and white but I do sometimes
work with color. My ceramic preference currently is
with the raku style. My graphic precidence is with Photoshop
but in the area of graphics, I am still very much in
the discovery mode and will forever be for there is
always something new and exciting to experiment with.
So far, I have played with director 5, quark express,
gif animation, macromedia flash and web portfolio design
to name a few. In the area of illustration, my partiality
is with pencil, oil pastel, oil paint and charcoal.
This being my infant stage in art, it is crucial for
me not to be locked into any one particular MEDIUM,
as I am sill in the learning phase as an artist. I do
have the above-mentioned inclinations but they are not
set in stone.
My connection to my medium is soulful and contemplative.
I hope to encourage a positive and comforting response
for the viewer.
The sense of art to me is to retain contact and interest,
make communication possible where it might not have
ever occurred, to cause a reaction, whatever it might
be, expected or not. Evoke the spirit and resonate continually
at each viewing and remain after the viewing has ended.
Sadly, to me what is missing from the artistic landscape
is more sites such as this one where there is a possibility
for networking for both professionals and amateurs alike
to foster open dialogue and constructive criticism,
a chance to exhibit your thoughts, feelings and creative
endeavors and to be seen and heard and possibly appreciated
and make connections for the benefit of all concerned.
This is something there is never enough of, support
for one another, instead of competing and BACK SLASHING.
Friendly rivalry which is both exciting as it is stimulating
ñ this is what is missing from the grandee scale
that is art. I believe this to be the main problem in
today's world, especially in the states, here in America
and especially in New York ñ that most artists
cannot make it always on their own, not without some
sort of human chain of support and comradely.
I do not fool myself to enter into this canvas of art
with any preconceived notions or expectations. Instead,
I trust my instincts for what will open the doors to my
highest good and through that passageway; I hope to provide
nurturing consolation, something, which fills the gaps
in one's character. I seek to achieve this goal by continuing
with my studies in academia as well as in my personal
travels throughout life in general.
