Untitled Document

"PAINTING IS MY WAY OF EXPLORING THE MYSTERIES OF DAILY LIFE, THE UNCERTAINTY OF WHAT IT IS TO BE HUMAN, & SCRATCH AT THE LAYES OF ONE’S EXISTENCE. MY DEEPEST CURIOSITIES LIE BENEATH THE SURFACE WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED. MUSIC, POETRY OR EVEN A SINGLE WORD CAN SPARK AN IDEA. WHAT IS MOST CENTRAL COMES TO ME IN SILENCE, THAT SPECIAL TIME IN BETWEEN ALL THE CHAOS, ALLOWING A MOMENT OF REPOSE. MY APPROACH TO ART IS PURELY NATURAL & SPONTANEOUS RATHER THAN DELIBERATE. I LET THE COLORS & IMAGES PRESENT THEMSELVES TO ME WITHOUT QUESTION. SLOWLY, THE PAINTING REVEALS IT’S SECRETS TO ME, MUCH LIKE AWAKENING FROM A DREAM. ART ALLOWS ME THE FREEDOM TO EXPLORE & TO ENTER THE INEFFABLE SPACE IN BETWEEN. IT IS WITHIN THIS COUNTLESS SPACE THAT RESIDES THE CREATIVE SPIRIT."

SLADE FINE ART IS A COMMISSION-BASED COLLABORATION.

Life consists of a series of events and perceptions each uniquely our own. Fleeting moments captured visually allow us to revisit experiences and re-connect with our emotions. These pieces are created for us to remember and share our past. 

Commission the Slade family to share your story.
