Joe Ewest Fine Art

I am delighted every day in simple things…an interesting pattern of power lines against a cloudy sky, a half-plowed field, a random arrangement of rocks, or strange shadows across my path. At the same time, I feel an intense contrast in the complexity of human interaction that coexists and generates friction, collision and also an odd sense of balance. It is the constant push and pull, the frenetic layering of every day that energizes, confuses, overwhelms and inspires me to paint. My work is about process as I move through places or experiences, expressing feelings that I often can't identify or explain.
