Artist, author, and instructor/creative coach, Larry has a diverse background as a visual communicator: Advertising and design, fine art, plein air (location painting), illustration (35 years) and has worked in almost every medium and style you can think of… except maybe egg tempera and marble. Through his exploration Larry has discovered that the creative process behind all of these approaches is pretty much the same.
As an instructor, he takes his years of acquired knowledge from illustration, graphic design, location painting, teaching Critical thinking and the aforementioned topics and morphs them together in his work and teaching. He gives people a way to access the creative spirit and broaden not just the way they paint but the way they think and play.
Work from Larry's series Intrusion is displayed and available at Gallery Wild. The series is a thought provoking and visually captivating series of oil paintings that asks the question 'Who is intruding on whom?' As humans take up more space, many species can be found on the fringes or even coexisting within human landscapes. Depending on how you look at it, who between humans and wildlife has the “right” to be there? Coexistence is, to many, still a novel concept and Larry's oil paintings can lead the mind into a much deeper exploration of human relation and understanding of wild, or lack thereof.
Each painting has a story, often from the artist's life, but he leaves plenty of room for the viewer's own interpretation. Beyond the story of each piece is Larry's lifetime of learning, teaching and exploration as an artist of most mediums. While a conservation driven message is behind each piece, Larry's work still hooks your attention without the backstory adding depth and richness to any space.
