Adolph Rutkin – Artist Statement
As a child in Tampa, Florida, I would sit beside my father and watch him water coloring in the family dining room. I loved to see the images and color take shape and this eventually led me to my own ideas and the beginnings of attachment to art that is a part of me today. I went on to major in Art at the University of South Florida where I received first a BA and then an MFA.
I have always been interested in the human condition with all of its turmoil, conflicts and ironies and I think of my work as a doorway that leads me and others to unexpected destinations. Color is a dominant concern and a force in the make up of each piece as I use contrast and turbulence to give the piece its structure and form. My artwork tells a story, perhaps several stories that are nor always apparent at the first viewing.
To me struggle seeks resolution. Expression looks for a voice. How you control the confusion and the battle that ensues forms the meaning of the work.
