Welcome to jpbegley-art/art services
artist. curator. consultant.
the intersection between drawing, painting, printmaking and digital technology!
After forty years being a printmaker and painter, as well as a gallery director and teacher, inspired by David Hockney, I began drawing on my iPhone in the summer of 2014. Since December 2014, I have completed and posted at least one digital drawing each day.
Most begin with an appropriated image encountered in my daily existence. I find the ubiquity and constant presence of the phone both inspiring and challenging. It provides a most serious playground for dada abstraction and absurdist commentary.
The ability of the digital format to appropriate, re-contextualize and manipulate images allows me to engage with both historic and contemporary issues of post-modern, interdisciplinary art.
