Artist Rocky Burkhardt BFA, Ma.ed

Master Artist & Teacher

Statement

I wish to show through my artwork that humans and their surroundings exist, extend, connect and are unified with each other, nature, the world, universe and with The Creator. Everyday, our lives are filled with profound mystery. I wish to aesthetically provide a pathway from mystery to an understanding of life and beyond. I hope to do this with simplicity that is rich in its ability to show complexity. I believe in the formal qualities of structure and process, but without restriction. Most of all, I want my artwork to have profound meaning and impact upon those who come into contact with it.
