Artist Statements

Larry Blizard
When asked about the impetus for my artwork, I mention two points: (1) I have had a lifelong love of drawing; (2) I have a tendency to see visions, and I have a compulsion to make them visible to others.

Regarding the first point, I love the feeling of making lines on paper; of shading, making something darker and darker; and making imaginary subjects seem real.

As to the second point, my inspiration comes from 'visions' based on my life experiences. I derive much satisfaction from the creation of satisfactory compositions involving the shaping and reshaping of these visions. Instead of humans, I use the common critters I observe in my backyard; it gives me the opportunity to create fur with many, many lines.

At this point in life, I find a lot of peace from drawing.
