Bring Light to the World
After another minor hiatus, I moved the site to a new host and I’ve put some new work up here. I’m really proud of this painting and it’s metaphorical message. It was heavily inspired by the Irving Norman paintings I saw at the Crocker Art Museum.
This painting is a small study that may lead into a bigger piece coming up. Painting has never been my strong suit, so my images won’t look photo-realistic. Realism is just one way to create art, there is a lot of power in images and symbols. Irving Norman uses a lot of symbolism and imagery to create illusory worlds that only exist in one still frame. I feel like I could jump into the universe of any painting of his and figure out the physics and rules of the new world inside of the painting.
