Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece is because the umbrella is caught between the snow in the air and the snow on the ground. Whoever holds the umbrella, although sheltered from above, will find no solace from below.
I created this piece on a late night, staring out my bedroom window in LA and missing the winters I used to have in Seattle.
My inspiration in creating this piece was remembering the winters I grew up in. Since movie to LA, I don't ever see the snow anymore. Most of the time, I'm happy about that but, every now and then, I definitely miss the feeling of having to brave the weather and head outside.
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! :))
