Artist Interview: Quinton Decker

...most of the time, it's just making the mark and being expressive....I try to see the character in the marks that I'm making on the canvas and work from there...usually it kind of reveals itself to me in some way... - Quinton Decker on getting inspiration thru his artistic process

Influenced by expressionism and graffiti, Quinton Decker's exhibit "Train of Thought" blends the depth of emotions with the lightness of visual play through his dexterous use of line, color, and character.    The rich, bold images are currently on display at the Miikanan Gallery inside the Watermark Art Center.  Decker spoke on the morning show about his  transition from pottery to painting and how he came to his unique painting style after realizing he was pushing himself in a direction that didn't feel artistically authentic.  

"Train of Thought" can be seen in person at the Watermark or you can see view the show virtually on the Watermark Art Center website
