Then and Now

by Donato

In preparing for a visual lecture this past month, it was fun to look back at the themes and tropes I loved to draw as a young artist, and reflect upon where those ideas have taken me to today.  In revisiting content from those earlier years, I find it a wonderful conduit through which I channel my maturing narratives and passions as an artist.  More than nostalgic, the excitement I feel regarding these themes taps into the awareness of my audience and the desire to share new concepts reflecting my current state of mind.

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing, Donato! It's always very inspiring to see where artists began and what they enjoyed with their early work. Even more so when the artist has gone on to become so skilled in their work.
