With Water WW0017JS
This image needs you to finish it- to make it into art. You’ll use your memories of waves or water when you look at this piece. Then, and unconsciously, you will fill in the gaps, colors, and lines of the paintings for what you think you see – in a way that feels most comfortable for you. The man, separate from, and still part of, the water.
In this piece, I painted a real model, Jon, and let him pose on the large painted canvas. I then took a photograph of that moment to create the image here. During the process, I did not pose Jon on the canvas exactly. If successful, it is your brain that merges him and the canvas together with almost visible lines.
Some viewers say that it points toward the limited capacity that we all share – to know what our brain has filtered out, and what we might be missing. In another way, perhaps, it is a reminder for all of us, to slow down, take a breath, and ‘see’ what is right in front of us.
The views expressed by our artists in their artist statements do not necessarily represent the views of our art galleries. Artists can be visually expressive but may verbally misrepresent their true intentions or ideas. Please note that we support expression, whether it is controversial or not, but our intention is never to offend.
