Agony In Art

Agony In Art


“True art comes from True agony.” Stevie Ray Vaughan

Last month I went to see Godfrey Townsend play at an annual Christmas Jam, totally amazing to see and hear such a creative and talented force in person… In-between his sets we were able to talk and our conversation flowed into how some artists create from agony, that within the guitar riffs, words and lyrics, in their voice and within the forms and expressions in painting, you can see and hear, and feel the pain and agony of the artist…

Those are the moments of connect and transference. The power and energy in the music, the depth in the lyrics and the hurt in the singers voice, the loneliness and searching within the painters brush strokes… For some artists these are cleansing moments working through the depths of despair to the energy of enlightenment and reset… And yet, for other artists those moments are all to brief in release, their agonies remain and fill with despair…

That night our conversation lead me to connect with Chris Cornell, one of music’s most gifted an electrifying artists who created some of the most soul gripping music ever heard… His voice, as powerful as the sum of all nature was his gifted force, often times pouring out his pain… This painting ‘Enough Said’, celebrates Chris Cornell’s gifts and reminds us to reach out to those who hurt…

Creating Art from Agony Dave Pucciarelli creates his Iconic works through pain

"True art comes from true agony..." haunting words from the immortal artist/musician, Stevie Ray Vaughan echo through my mind and tap into an area of creative drive and even personal cleansing and of self-realization that I'd never known...

Well, it sure has been a while between blogs, however, that will change starting right now! I will be blogging here at least two to three times per week... First off, I wished to thank my fellow artist for taking the time and reviewing my works and esp., for the compliments! Very much appreciated... Each and every one of you that has do so, well, I am moved by the talent each of you has. Your works are remarkable and captivating, very moving, beautiful in quality and detail... Thank you again!!

I would like to mention to everyone out there, both my peers and those of you who have purchased my works through this site and via the additional avenues in which my work is sold; I cannot thank you enough. Means the world to me to know that other people think so highly of my work and subject matter, that you would want to purchase it... Within the next few days, I will be announcing, and publicly listing a new book that is in the works which includes art works, photographs and essays of the many famous faces and in-famous places that for one reason or another, have captured my imagination, sparked the match to lite my creative passion, and saw me through some life altering and very bleak periods in my life... If not for their music, written words and works of art, I might never have made it this far, nor found my way home... If my faith sustains me, then the works and sound-scapes of those that I admire, ease the daily pain and continuously touch my creative soul...

With my new, first ever blog I will strive to reveal the role personal agony and tragedy, play in bringing out our creative eye, and developing a way of exercising our demons, hurt, failures and agony through the creative process... My name is David (Dave) Pucciarelli. I am a self-taught professional artist/photographer whom like millions the world over, have suffered some Hellish setbacks, and heartaches, losses and physical and mental agonies that have sought to destroy the very person I am... I hope in some way, this blog guides others to realize just how important the creative process can be.

I will inject quotes of example and inspiration from my heroes, the famous and the every day person who strives to survive... "One must endure to survive..." Ernest Hemingway.... I open my blog to all to take part in... My bio in part: I am the in house artist for the Mickey Mantle Baseball Organization, Commerce, OK. A top selling artist at the Ernest Hemingway Museum, Key West and my works are associated with Goose Gossage, Don Mattingly, The Knievel's, VP of the Baseball Hall of Fame, to name a few. I have had the additional Blessings of having sold thousands of my works across the globe; I have also felt the vapor of Death's breathe head on, two times in my life. I have stumbled failed many times over, some because of my own ignorance, other times through other people's utter fraud... Until my next entry; God Bless those in need and who strive to better themselves; and Lord take Vengeance to those who seek to harm and cheat...
