Through another’s eyes…

Written on April 19, 2008

I had the opportunity to paint again last weekend, hunched in the garage over my paint and tiles as the sun shone down outside. It’s a funny association, but when the sun is shining I feel the call to paint. I’m sure it’s a remnant of when I didn’t have proper lights and relied on sunny days off to get the proper lighting I need.

Based on a conversation I had with my love about what she’s looking for in a piece, I revised my approach, particularly in how I ‘framed’ these images, trying to create a sense of object or depth within the flow.

I’m quite happy with the results, and it’s opened up my mind in terms of input from other sources, so I’m going to pose the question: Which pieces are you attracted to and why?

    This image is available in a much larger format in the gallery. It automatically resizes based on your screen size, but you can access the whole image by right clicking on it. The full sized images are 1000×750 pixels…

    I like 3324 because it reminds me of the rings in trees, or the growth of mycelium in a petri dish. I like (oh wow, it’s already named Volcanic) because it looks like some sort of massive geological event, the likes you would see around a volcano involving explosions of lava. I like 2538 because in the bottom third, directly in the center I see a face, trapped in some sort of organic coral reef like castle which is green….

    Basically I would say any thing that commonly causes apophenia, like seeing sand castles in clouds…. Or pareidolia (more along the lines of seeing faces because of vertical symmetry) for that matter, the thing that makes ink blot tests ‘work’… I’m more likely to be drawn to.

    Although, art and perception being such subjective experiences, I’m sure there is going to be a large variance to what people see in which piece.

    I’m just blown away by the whole techique and the precision that it makes on the details. It looks random and abstract and at the same time solid,done completely by working in all of the areas of the painting by hand. All in all,i like the random solidness and the coulourite in this one. And by the way,congrats on making your own unique way into the paintings that you do,just amazing!
