Birthing life is beautiful, but the reality is it’s hard work. We all fantasize creating our masterpiece will be adventurous and fun, however, just like all energy on this planet, there must be positive and negative for anything to exist in our experience. It is law that one must experience the bad before we can appreciate the good otherwise we feel nothing.
Get to Know the Austin Artist: JR Rapier
I am always exploring new ideas in my work, dealing with the human figure and obscure life events that transform us forever. These ideas want to manifest, as if entities themselves. I am bringing them my skill as a painter and giving them an outlet to exist and be seen. They are vulnerable and naked stories of the human condition. Telling them continues to fulfill my journey and purpose as an artist.
