J. G. Freedman

 Like music and poetry, painting has the advantage of being able to refer directly to the senses – bypassing the intellect. I would like my paintings to trigger that emotional link in you .I hope you are amused or angered or befuddled or disgusted or confused or calmed or delighted or saddened or something, anything so long as you interact with what I have placed on the canvas. This is the moment I paint for – the moment when the image you see in a painting of mine evokes a memory, a dream – and we connect. That is the magic of art.
