About Dominique Vargo

I am an abstract and surreal artist who works mostly in pencil and ink pen stippling. I love to create images with lots of movement and flow. My subjects include angelic creatures, earthen elements and celestial objects. My creation is driven by my subconscious thoughts to express emotional moments that viewers can relate to or identify with, not dictating what others should feel but only that they can. Most of my creations start out as brief sketches of an idea. The images evolve as each pencil mark is laid. I never know what will happen in the areas not originally planned in the concept sketches. My ink pen stipplings are mostly studies in stream of consciousness. I enjoy doing ink pen stippling because I can start with just a few pencil marks or ink wash on the paper and let the pen direct where the next dot will go. I let the emerging image guide the next mark.

"A Moment" Totem Project. I used to have objects that I can hold and look at, when I'm in chaos or darkness, to remind me what is real. The object provides me a moment, just one moment, for something, anything. A moment of thankfulness for the things I have. A moment to realize maybe things aren't so bad. A moment to reflect. A moment to make a different choice.  A moment to change a mindset. Sometime it only takes a moment. And that moment can be a good thing. I want to provide that moment through my art. This project is something that has been on my mind for many years but I never really know how to present it. I didn't want the art to just be on the wall. I wanted it to be something a person can hold onto, to keep with them for those times when the art can provide that one meaningful moment, a "totem" of sort. Each totem contains a small print of my original artwork, is matted with either a solid color circular mat or a one of a kind hand painted mat. Each totem is sealed. Sometimes, it might just take a moment ...
