Expressions of my life - An evolution of art.

Often in life we feel that we are wondering our paths alone. Life so often is big, hard and emotionally challenging. Then every once in a while we meet that one person that changes our life our perception of life and the things around us. It’s in these precious moments that we form a union. A bond between two humans is a strong and powerful thing. That being said I was recently asked to paint a piece that represented that union, that bond that so often makes us feel whole. Please enjoy

Expressions of my life - An evolution of art.

Since the very beginning of me starting this blog and site I’ve been posting the “The Process” over time and complications from life and lack of time do to travel I haven’t been able to stay up on providing you some examples of what my creative process is like.
Today even though I’ve a number of things on my mind and a number of things in my physical life to attend to I’d very much like to share the start and completion of Healing Waters with you. So as we begin, here are the main implements used in the creation of this piece.

I’m pretty simple in the tools I use most of the time. Here you’ll see a basic utility brush that’s about 25 years old, two of my palette knives, two rubber spatulas made by Catalyst some sandpaper a spray bottle and dish of warm, clean…

Words on Persistence of Memory

image

Persistence of Memory

As time ticks by and melts
Into the fabric of our lives
We are etched into existence
Through a space we can’t define
From the pathways that we take
And cross along the way…
We leave footprints in the past
That return to us today…
through the
Persistence of Memory!

The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali was well known as a surrealist painter- often times waking up in the middle of the night to paint what he saw in his dreams. Rumor has it that he ate some soft cheese right before bed and that’s what inspired the melting clocks.

“Dali sometimes referred to his paintings as “hand-painted dream photographs” and The Persistence of Memory can certainly be characterized as such.The drooping pocketwatches possibly suggest the irrelevance of time during sleep. In other words, when we are asleep, or not conscious, the time does not persist, only memories do. This distortion of time can be easily observed by just about anyone who ever attempted to think about their own dreams.Some art historians theorize that the painting may be a visual depiction of the idea behind the Einstein’s theory of relativity: that time itself is relative and not fixed. But that’s quite possibly a shot in the dark. The painting’s meaning strongly suggests psychoanalytical values, those to do with the research of Sigmund Freud. Dali himself hasn’t shown much interest in painting from science until after World War II, when the Hiroshima atomic bomb made an impression on him and began nuclear (or ‘atomic’) period of his work, in which the painter focused on adding elements to his paintings that suggested atomic composition of what is known as matter. This can be further acknolwdged by another painting Dali painted later in his life called The Disintegration of The Persistence of Memory (oil on canvas, c. 1952 to 1954), where he literally takes the contents of this painting apart suggesting the end of the importance of psychoanalysis, which is replaced by the knowledge of subatomic particles, a concept that supersedes psychology as a higher form of existence.”

I don’t want Green Girl to fall along the wayside as so many of my previous surrealistic pieces have in the past so I’m calling her completed. For better for worse for whatever reason I don’t feel I have anything else to give her. So to the world I give you Green Girl.
A story of history and birth. A story of strength and restriction. A message of perseverance in the face of subjectivity and objectivity. When the dust settles are we not all just made of simple bits that when composed into a larger picture create a thing of great beauty and respect.

Namaste
