Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Jamy Kahn
Van Nuys, Ca, ,
I am particularly involved with the idea of how a thought forms, by joining with another thought and then another, becoming a “thought process”. I use abstraction to symbolize thought. Thoughts lead to actions, actions become habits, and habits become customs. If you could change one thought within a sequence, interrupt a thought pattern, you could perhaps then shift the resulting behavior pattern, allowing more of an action of CHOICE to result, versus a habitual expression of the same behavior.I paint bigger canvas surfaces and then extract sections of painted areas which to me represent a particular emotion, thought, or aspect of a mind set. Sometimes, I will construct a “thought pattern” or story piece from parts or pieces of different bigger paintings, if these help me to communicate the essence of the moment I am trying to capture. As in life, if you add or subtract a particular person from the “picture”, the entire energetic of the resulting mix of people or flow of a situation will be different.
