Ready to Hang
Do me a favor? After you have looked at it head on move your body to look at it upside down, sideways, slantwise, even bob up and down. Look hard, look soft, look long, and listen.
This painting is both quiet and loud; Superficial and multi-dimensional- It shifts.
It just depends on how long you look, how bright the light is, and what angle you're coming from.
I run through a gambit of emotions when I create, and every single one goes into the painting itself. I literally move as much as I asked you to move in order to capture each part of that conversation I encounter between my internal world and what spills out onto the canvas. I'll tell you, it's not always a pleasant conversation either. Its filled with duality and conflict, but I'm compelled to wade through that foggy gap between perception as a learned experience and perception as an intentional reality.
In a certain light you can see how this painting is a thumbnail of the psyche of the human experience.
