Mixed Media on Canvas
30 in x 40 in
This mammoth masterpiece is scrappy to say the least. With its stained papery surface and symbol-laden composition, the visual mindscape here is overwhelming. Not only is its size intimidating, but the amount of information, colors, and textures present in this one piece alone can inundate the viewer. Luckily, the mostly-white painting reflects the inner working of the artist’s past and present. Bits and pieces of thoughts, ideas, and visions unite to form a collage of knowledge and experience. One could make an easy judgement and assume all the placements of the pieces are random, but at a longer glance the human mind starts to bridge the gaps and make sense of the placement. Metaphorically, this artwork can represent the human condition: we are in fact a compilation of experiences, information, thoughts, feelings, emotions, words, and sentences. This painting is essentially a simple and abstracted human in the form of a stretched out and slathered slice of canvas. This piece leaves a lasting impression in its ability to constantly reveal novel visual intricacies no matter how many times it is viewed.
