The outline as foundation
His creative process whether it be with a Montana BLACK or GOLD can in hand, an inked up BOLD marker, or paint brush loaded with black paint, is always like a dance. The artist’s other life as actor feeds his act of painting. Each carefully planned, yet spontaneous letter having swing and movement as if it was the letters of invention that will help the people dance out of their problems. Necessity is the mother of all invention, and for SWEET the need for new, fresh and dynamic is what connects the idea, to the drawn, to the painted and back again. Take a moment here to lose yourself in some of his current work all exploring the path from throw up/sketch to painting. All connected with the fundamental black outline.
