QRCKY

Lips Cafe, August 2021

Qrcky born in southern Virginia during the seventies to a family where art was not practiced or encouraged, Qrcky was drawn instinctively to Chuck Jones' cartoons, Norman Rockwell's c, and Bob Ross' PBS show. Qrcky would try to imitate their art while watching cartoons. Twenty years later and entirely desolated by a bad marriage and subsequent relationships, Qrcky began to paint reverting to the kinds of self-expression he felt closest to as a child. Finding freedom in his art, Qrcky found his voice by exile himself away from friends and family. He discovered that under emotional distress and displacement he was able to focus and paint at his strongest while feeling content and whole.
