Artist – Christopher Scardino

Scardino_Chris

An artist is the grand sum of all their parts.  The small, sometimes ineffective morsels coupled with the medium sized bits of momentary genius and the gargantuan chunks of fleeting greatness all sized up to who we are at any given moment.  My moments of exhilaration and triumph are coming to me faster now after years of floating in the abyss of standard, run of the mill ideas. The work consists of what I feel like exploring at that very moment and usually commences after I scratch a few “notes” out in the form of some rudimentary drawing. I use this drawing as a blueprint for what I would like to uncover.  The materials range from oil to wood to aluminum and wood dowels to aluminum stearate, olepasto, wall compound and whatever else I choose to get my hands on.

The process has become more important as time goes on. Gathering up all the materials and taking the time to measure and meander through some mathematical precision to get the right image out in front of me activates the right channels in my brain so that I can continue with great cognitive enthusiasm.

My work is both hard and soft, bold and passive, sensitive and harsh in its coloration but above all it is something to enjoy in the visual sense and something to use in the functional sense.  I want my collectors to enjoy the pieces in different ways and be able to interact with the art in any way they see fit.   Once it leaves the studio it is no longer mine.  It’s your now.  Do enjoy.
