Don Voss, Toltec Artist
Don Voss is a man of his own creation. Likewise, he is a creator of wondrous images sometimes devoid of content, yet filled with infinitely meaningful vision. Don’s art does not defy your heart’s imagination. Rather his work invites your heart to venture out and find the universe it’s long been missing.
While the roots of Don Voss’s craft spring forth from an ages-old Toltec tradition, his work over the years tells of a life story of a uniquely personal transformation. While his work now differs greatly from the first pieces he created more than 30 years ago, all of Don’s creations are infused with a growing movement – an underlying intent – a journey of perception that carries the viewer indefinitely into infinity.
Don’s mission in art is not the establishment of a personal style. Instead, it is a silent handing-off from the artist to the beholder – so that the beholder may gaze into the work of art and proceed on their own perceptive journey, in their own manner, free to journey onwards of their own accord.
Hear the Interview – Audio File
I met recently with Don to view his art and to hear ideas on how technology has influenced art in these modern times.
Among the things we spoke of were:
- Linearity in European art, and Circularity in Asian art
- “Mistakes” are a part of art
- Using paper instead of canvas
- The content beyond the page
- Technology’s impact on modern art
- The diminishing attention span of the beholder
