Ready to Hang
I created this piece for 2 reasons: I wanted to use iridescent gold in a piece and it seemed fitting to use the early morning light as a platform (hence the title), and I wanted to capture feminine nudity in a tasteful way, no vulgarity, nor crudeness, just the essence of the feminine form. The inspiration for this piece came from an old friend from long ago. I remember this moment many years back when during the early morning she walked by a window and caught the light in a very peculiar way. It didn’t seem real.
San Francisco born artist Andrew Rosas has a unique take on art. “Art is not the piece, the thing you have created. The piece is just the tool, or the platform. Art is a conversation the creator has with the viewer or the participant. It is the purposeful drawing forth of thought or emotion from another through a conversation had without words. Art is crafting a feeling, or an emotion or idea, such that it becomes real and present for another human being. If I create something, and through the thing I have crafted an emotion or an idea, if I can walk away from it and someone else can step in and feel and understand the idea or the emotion, I have created Art.” Andrew takes much of his motivation from artists such as: MC Escher, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, and Georges Seurat.
