Welcome to Houston Carver Fine Art

 

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. “   -Aristotle

A common thread exists in my art – reflection. Portraying the inference of the human imprint on everyday objects; through still-life’s or the ‘domestic landscapes’ we inhabit. I embrace the rich tradition of ‘vanitas’ painters. Loving the surreptitious approach symbolism affords to address universal experiences via my own personal iconography.
Expressing the effects of light on objects with nuanced color palettes
is an ever engaging process for me as a painter.

I strive for my work to be visually engaging while inspiring an introspective search for personal meaning.
I agree with Max Beckman who stated,
“In order to get something universal you must be very specific.”
