Module Art by Ross Drago
I developed Module Art as a way of unifying several different styles of painting, symbolic, impressionist and abstract, into a coherent whole. This way of painting allows the viewer to re-compose each painting endlessly as a way of dissolving the line between artist and viewer. Each module art painting is therefore a co-creation, and like music, each painting exists in time and is ever changing.
Each viewer comes upon a painting that, because it was re-composed by the previous viewer, has never been seen before and will never be seen again. In this way, I share the realization that each moment in our lives is also unique to each individual.
I paint in an energy symbol language of my invention so that my subject matter can include not only people, places and everyday things, but also more abstractly, waves of self- definition and emotional changes. In this way, I attempt to give form and expression to that which is invisible and celebrate that energy dance visually.
