Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece is because it seems likes these days everyone is losing control. Losing their minds, really. The title is supposed to be a tongue in cheek jab at how our system is so broken right now.
I created this piece in a period of my life where every time I turned on the TV something bad had happened. Too many bad things happening.
My inspiration in creating this piece was to be tongue in cheek about how gun rights and issues have become so prevalent in our society. The gun, being bigger than the cityscape AND above the cityscape, symbolizes that is has more power than any one person in the city below.
My name is Cameron West and I'm an actor, producer, writer, musician and artist living in Los Angeles. I see the beauty in every day life and I want others to see it too. That's why I have my hands in so many different genres; to reach as many people as possible. From an early age I was fascinated by the way that colors and shapes, in different combinations, could elicit different responses from different people; one person might see a a red box as a wagon, while another might see it as a barn. The wagon brings about a feeling of whimsical youth while the barn brings about a feeling of every life on a farm...and yet, the red box is just a red box...or is it? It's these types of questions that keep me busy. What I see might be what you see, but it might be something else entirely. That's why I LOVE art. It's all subjective and there is no right or wrong. Art imitates life which imitate art. It's a wonderful circle. WILL COMMISSION CUSTOM PIECES! :))
