Description Acrylic on Canvas/original 36x36x1.5 (inches)/ The following Poem 'Salience' was written by Gerald Goodrum (for the entire poem, press the refresh button on your screen)/ Nature and the unconditional Collide with possibilities and futures As response mechanisms adjust To that which is foremost./ To overcome or to succumb, That is the question. To acknowledge its existence Is a feat in and of itself./ The presumed, the given But by whom and for whom And with what motive Self-relevance to be checked./ As the medium is rolled The doctors spin With frequent maneuvers Back and forth over and over./ Interestingly groups are formed And goals are achieved While plans are built and Decisions are made./ The sign endowed and given Has been finally interpreted Literally but most importantly With connotative surprises.
Gerald Goodrum, Houston Member Since November 2015 Artist Statement "It should not be hard for you to stop sometimes and look into the stains of walls, or ashes of a fire, or clouds, or mud or like places, in which...you may find really marvelous ideas." (Leonardo da Vinci)
From 2009 until 2013 I lived in Rome where I served (in an unofficial capacity) as guide to the Vatican Museums, the Capitoline Museums, the Centrale Montemartini, the Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, the Borghese Gallery, the Colonna Gallery, the National Gallery of Modern Art, and the Doria Pamphilj Gallery.
In 2015, after having visited many of the renowned museums in the major cities of Central and Western Europe, as well as in Washington, DC, New York, Houston, Montreal, and Mexico City, I met the Mexican artist Mario Belmares. It was really through observing the process of him at work that I became inspired to initiate my own projects.
My present works are abstract and moderately abstract realist with an emphasis on color field painting via the media of acrylic, charcoal and spray paint on canvas.
Art is a passion and a hobby; my actual occupation is as a Roman Catholic Priest of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. To inquire regarding the originals, message me via facebook.com/gerald.goodrum.
