FLUX Hawaii presents Silas Stoddard, A Solo Exhibition, at Hotel Renew.

Artist Statement

“From as far as I can remember, I have looked to art as a source of contentment. Early in my childhood, the process of creating had been my plaything. It later became a major part of my growth process and the principal part of my life. The arts by which we choose to live, can give meaning to our lives, help us adapt to change, express that change, and create chances for it. It’s a life long work in progress and I’m always working out a vocabulary of forms or icons. More so, I strive to create a work that becomes aware, honestly forceful, and vast. My art is often a kind of narrative pulled from experience, and other times it’s a snapshot of lyrical imagery spit onto the canvas. My aesthetic vision often consists of interactions between feminine and masculine elements of design. I continue to explore a verity of avenues and subject matters.”
