I enjoy exploring the relationship between the circle, triangle and square through the use of lines. I see my work as an exploration of the fundamentals. I believe the basic fundamentals are what help give meaning and shape to everything else.
In my free time, I like to surf with my boys, go on walks with my dogs, and most of all go out on a date with my wife at least once every week. I'm currently open for commissions. Please email me at jbsandifer at gmail dot com to share your commission request and learn more about my art process.
Many art teachers will say there are 7 elements of art: Line, Shape, Value, Color, Texture, Form, and Space. I agree.
I always start with lines. The lines usually turn into shapes. The lines and shapes are spaced intuitively within the edges of the picture plane. Through the idea of texture, the lines and shapes start to build value: lights and darks. Sometimes the value is overlaid with color.
I am a spiritual person. I believe in The Holy Spirit. I believe it is the Holy Spirit who leads to truth. Truth is fundamental. Truth is not complex. Truth is not complicated. Truth is basic. I believe the truth is a person. Jesus is known for saying, “I am THE truth.” I believe The Holy Spirit always points to Jesus Christ.
I believe in the creative expression of art and design, the basics quickly begin to take on symbolic meaning.
The natural is an overlay of the spiritual. For me, art is another way of communicating and expressing these deeper connections to the Holy Spirit.
