I’m presently down for the count with a pelvic fracture, so my blogs about future paintings are on hold until further notice. Thanks for your patience.
Hi. My name is Larry Gagner, and I’ve been an artist since my days at the University of Florida, where I earned a fully paid education by way of a scholarship.
But it wasn’t an art scholarship. It was for football. Yup. I was both a college and a professional football player, eventually playing as an offensive (but polite) lineman for the Pittsburgh Steelers for four years. Yet my exposure to art, gaining my artists’ eye, occurred as a commercial art student. And it is the two of these: athletics and the ability to see art, that prepared me for my life as a working artist.
For me, my art ties directly to the experiences of my life. Those are the things that I am sensitive too, and can share, cause they are part of my life. I like the creativity involved in laying out my images, the use of color and fracture, to convey movement, moment and energy. I use these to convey my feelings about the subject.
By all means, look around! I have a variety of works, and a variety of derivative products from these works. Chances are, you’ll find something about me, that you like about you. I certainly hope so!
