TERRY HINKLE - About my art…
The new mixed media paintings of mine are part of a vision that I have dreamed of creating for over 40 years.
After over 30 years in advertising, I finally found the way to break the confining bonds of commercial art and dive into the exhilarating flow of the unstructured, pure creative energy that makes up my new abstract, and figurative artwork.
Many times I wake up from a dream with a complete visual of a finished painting in my head and I have to rush to capture it before it fades away. But most days, I do a simple meditation before I enter my studio to clear out all of the ‘human’ noise and set my intention for the day. Then, with a clear, uncluttered mind, I select the wood or paper or canvas that I am going to start with, and happily enter that intoxicating stream of creative energy, never knowing where it will take me. This is my new path of freedom and a journey of pure emotional and creative expression that I am excited to be able to share with others.
