RESUME

“For me color is very important... It is the emotional base of my painting”
                    -- Eo Omwake


“I have painted in realism, expressionism, abstraction, and non-representational styles.  The thing I like about 

non-representational-ism is the freedom and lack of figurative orientation. This allows the painting to take on many levels of meaning free of association the things in the outside world"
                  -- Eo Omwake

 

“My paintings are sums of everything I have experienced.  They are about life."
                 -- Eo Omwake


“I am for painting that points to the territory of the unknown... toward something transcendental - that still includes the mundane and even the ugly.”
                   -- Eo Omwake

 

“Art is the search for freedom.”
                  -- Eo Omwake  

 


"I am for an art that contains the spark of humanity -  and shows the spirit of the age.  Art is the constant search into the unknown for something we have never seen before.”
                   -- Eo Omwake
