Altman’s images are transformed into patterns of Cubism and High Analytical Cubism of Picasso and George Braque, translating the imaginative form of Watteau’s metaphysical world. He has combined what many artists, in the past, used on a singular basis.
The viewer is taken on a tour, of a new metaphysical world, with the comfort of timelessness, and patterns from objects of nature, working together. It is a calm world transformed by metaphysical beauty and created by poets such as John Donne and George Herbert. Altman’s aesthetics has joined this group of visual and literary artists, on a strong plain on the Isle of Cythera, as your visual guide of human emotions, dancing to the universal rhythms of nature on another dimension.
