Hello art lovers,
Hope Over Despair
I create art because I have no choice. The reason I am compelled to create, and the reason I consider the exercise therapeutic, is threefold.
1. Cancer Won.
I watched my beautiful wife of 31 years disintegrate before my eyes to breast cancer. She was diagnosed late in 2015. I was her primary caregiver for over 2 years, as she went from stage 1 to stage 4. She had a rare 2% cancer that was barely studied or researched because of its ruthlessness, and a zero percent survival rate. I spent over 2/3 of my entire life with this one person. And then one day she was just 'gone'. Only 53 yrs young. Words do not exist to describe this loss. Cancer won.
2. Abuse Exposed.
A deeply disturbing story about my family emerged during my wife's attempt at recovery from breast cancer. I found out that both of my older siblings were sexually abused by my (monster) stepfather, for years on end no less. Hearing this news was like hearing a promo for a horrific Lifetime movie, but it was actually MY LIFE, my family. Truth is, I am still grappling with this to this day. Because of the trama, it took both of my siblings 50 years to come to grips with their abuse. The truth was unknown for 5 decades, as they buried it so deep in their psyche just to survive the madness. In fact, there is a chance I was also abused, I was the youngest, but I have no memory of it thus far. Let's hope that horrific realization never comes.
3. Hope Emerged.
Both the insanity of losing the love of my life, and the revelation of what horrors my siblings endured as children, has transformed the way I view life itself. The pain never goes away, it just changes shape. After having some time to process, something amazing happened. Surprisingly I began to feel a sense of renewed hope. I now have a deep understanding and appreciation of how and fleeting and precious life is, and I use these tragedies to enable me to live in the moment. I can share this hope with other people feeling a loss of a family member, or a loss of innocence. My art shares the possibility of HOPE with the world, and helping others find hope nourishes my soul.
From all of this devastation came personal transformation, and I arose as the artist I am today. Without art allowing me to exercise my demons of pain and loss of innocence, I would not have survived. And I would not be here right now, nor would I have the hope that lives in my heart today.
Once I decided to re-enter the Art world, I chose to work in abstraction. I pour pure emotion into every piece I create. I will not squander my time left on this planet. I produce work that connects with the viewer, non representational emotional work that can help people find their light in times of darkness, and rediscover the hope that exists in their hearts. If I can find hope in this madness, anyone can.
This is why I create.
Thank you for visiting Vincent Fine Art.
