This is the quote tat inspired the work:
“Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed.”~Blaise Pascal
Here we are again, looking at new art together and pondering the meaning of life. I’ve grown to enjoy this part of art making the best. The Sharing. The very best part of being an artist is being exposed. Naked. Out in the front where every one can see me, clearly. Yeah man, that’s good stuff. Not just for the being seen part (which is nice, yes indeed) but for the thrill of not knowing and doing it anyway. Will they like it? Hate it? Don’t give a shit about it? Who cares…coz I did this for Me! Whoot-Whoot…er, eh, back to the regularly scheduled programm…sorry about that.
I like this new work, it’s simple yet complicated. The heavy texture of the layer of plaster under the paint makes the whole work come to life as you move about the room. The glazes of blues and greens feel alive and wet with life itself. The silver paint I used for the emerging form from the murk catches light and transmutes it, it too has the feeling of moving water. I’ve hung this work over my desk so that I can continue to learn what it is showing me about my brain, growth, understanding. I like that.
I hope you liked it too…let me know what you think either way, I always welcome outside viewpoints. Make sure to check out this weeks art auctions, the eBay button is below for your ease. This painting will be going up on the web site very soon for sale, grab it while you can. Haha.
