Plane Window No61
“Plane Window No61” is part of my ongoing “Plane Windows” series.
The series feature intimate portrayals of plane passengers, painted as if from outside the plane, mid-flight. The people are presented in a relaxed state, their posture is natural; they are unburdened by the need to pose for the painter or a camera. The goal is to evoke intimacy while presenting an impossible and, therefore, distancing point-of-view.
The painting surface itself is likewise significant: I never use a traditional canvas and instead work with such three-dimensional objects as semi-spheres and wooden cutouts. Here, traditional canvas is discarded in favor of plane window replica. As such, my works are located somewhere between painting and sculpture, demonstrating the object-ness of a portrait and of art in general.
