Artist Statement Draft One: An idea for an upcoming series of works.
This is not a conceptual piece. This is not an artist’s emotional experience, and initially the painting itself has no meaning. The subject simply exists, and thus is re-produced in two layers, using the materials acrylic and graphite, respectively. It is a critical subjective viewing experience, encouraging the viewer to change their physical position in relation to the drawing, using the light available to detect each layer. This allows the viewers unique perception to emerge and find personal interpretation of each work.
The piece should be viewed in real life, the image via photograph represents a different idea, and it is difficult to show what I am describing above. Oh well.
