Statement

The Great Outdoors

 

Planned urbanization and mechanization remain crucial for human progress, and yet these advancements lead to a gradual loss of control. The more man craves technological progress with all its modern day comforts, the more alienated he becomes from his roots, over ourselves and our environment. In turn, we instinctively urge for the outdoors. Part of us yearns to connect with nature and feel the rejuvenating effect it has on our psyche. Unlike the constant obligations that demand something of us, the great outdoors gives something to us- a sense of coming home, of regaining our lost innocence, of finding peace at last.

 

My paintings are varying angles of a single prism. At first glance, you see a humored portrayal of a quaint scene; upon further examination, an integrated, multi-layered expression reveals itself. One can grasp the complexity and nuance of my vision only after abandoning our typical notions and then keenly observing the relationships and components at play. The projected images serve as a veneer, behind which an infinite number of experiences and interpretations are possible. Each painting has the potential for several meanings; one revealed by the presence of colours juxtaposed carefully to form a harmonious whole, one revealed by the intricate patterns and details, and one revealed by the underlying content and narration. Thus, what appears to be a choice of method (a technique involving four layers of colour) proves to be the seeds, sun, and water of a highly complex organism of construction.

 

The paintings intend to make you feel that you are watching a snapshot of life at maximum authenticity- exuberant and packed with bursting energy. There is one optical illusion born of another. Is the focus the scene at hand, the shapes and details that surround the people, both, or something else entirely? I seek to challenge the viewer to modify the typical way of reading conventional signs and patterns.

 

The conversation I hope to create in my work is a certain truth of life and on a deeper level, a well thought philosophy. I construct fantastic versions of accessible scenes, both rural and urban utopias. Individuals may interpret my paintings in vastly disparate ways and each view will be equally logical and plausible, thought provoking and intriguing. A picture of the moment is built in which whole relationships are made visible. My work is all about time. And through my paintings, time is movement stilled.

 

Society continues to forge ahead in scientific advancement, seeming to accelerate the divide in our connection to nature. And yet, we find ways to bring the outside back into our lives, at times subconsciously, at times with great perspective and intention. Ultimately, the goal and thus the journey remains the challenge to balance the polarity of the worlds in which we reside.
