This last painting seems to summarize best where I want to go in terms of my future art, an art that best reflects my own preoccupations with regard to graphical expression:
- A foundation of pure realism (what inspires us, the starting point, the natural world)
- Deconstruction of some sort giving the sense of the "immaterial" within what's material (the void that permeates everything)
- Childish Zen-like lines with little involvement from the rational mind but powerful enough to provide an anchor to vanishing forms
- The use of words and/or meaningful symbols (from a personal standpoint) to reinforce graphical elements
Note: this painting will be re-shot in the daylight and featured in my "New series 2012" slide show...
