Artist Statement

Artist Statement: “For me, art is a state of expression and an individual feeling in which one lives. Creation is life knowledge rejoined with exploration of the medium. Artists are searchers who are not ever satisfied, who always have to extend their thinking. Dissatisfaction allows the artist to make each day a new exploration and creation. Surrealism and abstract expressionism: these two styles permit me to share with people my interior, in the world we live.”

-Garry Mabour

“The existence of life is a truth

But the spirit of nature unknown

If I move forward or backward

Then I can imagine deeply

The complexities of the other directions

And the ways that reality

and the circumstances of myself

will be like the reflection

Of the full moon on the ocean”
