The term “Organic and natural” can be used to a wide range of subjects. I am composing about “Organic and natural Art“, and what that means to me, as men and women have tagged me….The Organic and natural Artist. I have generally been far more at ease outdoors, I just desire nature to partitions. As a boy or girl my Mom experienced to drag me inside every night. I lived just up the hill from a swamp, I know my fascination was born there in that magical swamp. I have quite powerful beliefs in helping our ecosystem, and concerns for the future of our planet.
   

When you imagine of the term natural, you naturally 1st imagine of produce, that has been organically developed without the need of chemical compounds. I imagine when referring to Art with the term Organic and natural hooked up, we the natural way will conjure up pictures in our minds of normal searching issues,  a lush landscape, a gnarled tree, or a bunch of freshly picked bouquets, perhaps even a basket of develop.   

I first thought about the strategy of “Organic and natural Art” although going for walks the creek mattress driving my house in Malibu, Ca. I needed to capture on canvas the feel of  hiking the trails, or exploring the creek. I needed to convey my response  to nature, a thing that experienced a truly innate normal appear and sense to it. To just take it a move even more, I needed to display the fundamentals of nature that we see each day, that are so strikingly acquainted to us, and their relationship to time.  

I’m  intrigued by micro assemblages, tucked just below the surface, unconventional concealed worlds total in on their own. Macro and micro natural happenings are ongoing frequently, normal occurrences that also have to do with the passage of time. Time reveals by itself through rotted wooden, new expansion, demise, strata on the aspect of a mountain wall, all these issues display the evolution of our Earth, organic markings of the passage of time.     Now, combine these  with inner thoughts of emotion,  physical movement of an artist responding to nature, and you have what I call….Organic and natural Art. It is an artists vision of nature, natures movement through time, and that particular artists inner thoughts, and responses. I want the viewer to re-are living an atmospheric memory in their relationship to nature and my artwork.

Organic and natural art can also be termed “Organic and natural” by the materials an artist is making use of. Artists use natural pigments, leaves, branches, berries, stones, and so forth. An assemblage of normal elements, a sculpture in  wood  or marble, stones stacked/positioned  along aspect a river……..or even crop circles, they are all examples of what I would term Organic and natural Art. 

 I discover that generating abstract art with an “Organic and natural” sensitivity in intellect lends by itself to converse of the emotions associated, rather than portray a really sunset that we all figure out to be a sunset. The reasonable landscape artist discusses the beauty of a forest they are portray. I am focused on the emotions and inner thoughts that my art conveys, atmospheric memories relived. Organic and natural art reeks of a specified familiarity, a thing quite basic, and necessary in our each day lives. My paintings express the natural complexities that surround us, at times about serenity, at times sophisticated layering programs of decay  or destruction. All of existence responds to the primitive, tangible, evolution of our planet, some just a little nearer to the source. Organic and natural art is rudimentary, it is necessary, it can be primordial, supportive and crucial. It may well express by itself in a piece of  raku fired ceramic, a collection of twigs, or paint on a canvas, twisted, layered, and textured. Organic and natural art is all all around us. Look at the automobile bumper rusted in a gorgeous swirl of burnt sienna, or the red paint peeling off the fence, they are all examples of a natural art getting effected by time. Organic and natural art is and generally has been a aspect of our ever switching planet.
