Artist Name
John C. Wagoner
Artist Statement

I deny my artwork as sculptures but define them as three-dimensional paintings, as these objects are entirely made out of the medium of paint. I challenge the notion of what painting is and where it could end.
         In the Treatise in Painting, Da Vinci wrote about which art was the most superior: sculpture or painting? He discussed which medium trumped the other and declared painting the victor. However, with technology over the decades people have claimed that ‘painting is dead’ and we start to see this debate again, which is the most superior?
         Within my work we see that painting has revived itself to evolve/adapt to our time and has begun to take over different mediums along with providing a social commentary. The idea of paint evolving or adapting can be seen as a ‘takeover’ on various media to survive in a world where fine art seems to be fleeting.
