My name is Mark Feuring, and my favorite style as a painter is to work within an abstract style of caricature imagery art. The journey of painting for me works through a non-objective style of abstract expression. My paintings range in size from around 20x24 inches and I work with enamel paint, traditional oil paint, and water miscible oil paint on canvas.
I enjoy the work of cartoon style imagery as influenced by animation while growing up in the 1970's. When I was a child, cartoons from artists such as Walt Disney, Looney Tunes, and Dr. Seuss were everywhere in media outlets. I am influenced by painters such as Joan Miro, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, and other abstract paintings of the 1920's and 1930's.
With my artwork, I move paint on a canvas and improvise which shapes and forms may become recognizable. Occasionally, I may sketch out a painting design with a marker or pencil. I may preconceive form and shape ideas with 2-D or 3-D design projects, but rarely while painting art. Painting is a less limited style of art form where improvisation can occur with practiced methods. Over time, and the building of generative ideas there may be a reflective circumstance which will begin to take over the notion of creativity on the canvas. I use expressive qualities of color with paint, and line making with brushes to build coherent and applicable abstract art for the gallery or home.
I am educated as an art teacher, and industrial designer. I have worked with 3-D modeling of sculpture forms, and computer CAD software. I am a very promising graphic designer, who will create a logo or print material for a client needs. In the past for employment, I have worked in wedding, print, and newspaper businesses.
With my paintings, I hope to visually communicate abstract objectives of two-dimensional shape and line. Artistic imagery can remain reflective in gesture of subject matter when composed with a non-objective expressive painting technique. I feel this style of objective artwork that I create will remain timeless and colorful, and design oriented.
