Hoeting, Christopher Paul
My artwork work focuses upon byproducts; byproducts of humans and byproducts as subject. My imagery picks up on the byproducts of society's organization of human life, such as prison architecture and security devices. Honor Farm is a metaphor for the human environment, space, and location that creates containment. Through the exploration of containment facilities, prisons, and barriers Honor Farm emerges as the subject matter. Desire for the barrier obstructs the balance among mind, body, and spirit. My art embraces the living environment as a link between the physical and the cerebral. The communication between material and image drives my process. Material informs the paint and the paint informs the imagery. In the last two years as an artist, my language evolved in relation to materials, images, and concepts.
