WINEDUDE7

WINEDUDE7, A.K.A JOHN ASBURY, IS A CONTEMPORARY FINE-ARTIST CURRENTLY WORKING IN FT. LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA. AS WELL AS A PAINTER, HE IS ALSO A CERTIFIED SOMMELIER AND PASSIONATE WINE AND SPIRITS ENTHUSIAST. FURTHER DEFINED, WINEDUDE7 IS ALWAYS FORMULATING, BUILDING OR CRAFTING SOMETHING INTERESTING. THAT IS SIMPLY AN ARTIST'S LIFE.  

MY WORK IS AN ONGOING, EMBLEMATIC TRANSLATION OF THE IDEA OF PEOPLE BEING CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF A HIGHER BEING. SINCE WE ARE TAUGHT THAT HUMANS WERE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, I SEEK TO EXPLORE THE IDEA OF A MYSTICAL, PERSONAL GOD WITHIN US. 
I FOUND MYSELF DEEPLY AWED AND INTRIGUED BY THE SEVERE RELIGIOUS PIETY AND PRACTICES I EXPERIENCED GROWING UP IN THE RURAL SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. AND I QUESTIONED THE REQUIREMENT THAT OUR TRUE SELVES, OUR INNATE DESIRES, BE REPRESSED IN REVERENCE TO A HIGHER BEING.  
THE EXPLORATION OF THE RIVALRY BETWEEN DARKNESS AND LIGHT FIGURES HEAVILY INTO WHAT I CREATE, AS DOES CONSCIENCE VERSUS DESIRE WITHIN THE HUMAN PSYCHE, SPIRITUALISM, AND PSYCHOLOGY.
THUS, INSPIRED BY MY OWN FUNDAMENTAL CURIOSITY, ALONG WITH MY COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCES, I SEEK TO REDEFINE THE HUMAN PORTRAIT ITSELF.
