Artist : DD Hackley
Hello I’m DD, by trade, I am based in the city of Philadelphia, I began painting on canvas in 2005. At the time, painting was a way for me to find solace from a stressful day. Self-taught by researching the different mediums, techniques, and tools that are used to create artwork that can transform your mood. Once I saw what could happen by adding paint to brush then to canvas, I began wanting to know and do more. I enjoy painting the colors of nature, the rich browns, golds, oranges, and reds, and especially the cool blues and greens. Presently, I have been fascinated with fluid art. How the paint interacts with one another to create different levels of color and effects is perfect. I subscribe to the belief that color can sway the thinking, change actions, and cause reactions.
Note from Curator : A gorgeous artwork of red and gold flowing florally on the canvas.
Quote : “I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
