For me, the unknowns of the process make for a journey of self-discovery and a more meaningful painting experience.” – Edward Corbett
As a contemporary painter, I am interested in interpreting subject and emotion in an abstract, intuitive way.  The process, daring paint application, color, texture, and the element of discovery inspire me.
In my process, I use materials instinctively.  This allows more freedom, more risk-taking.  As a painting evolves, I react to the dialogue between us.
I do not search for the literal truth of subject; I seek an expressive, personal interpretation.
