Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

My oil on panel painting, "Cameron Meets Seurat" is an homage to John Hughes' film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" which is in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. In Hughes's film, the three main characters skip out of school in Chicago's wealthy suburbs to spend a life changing day in the Windy City. At the Art Institute of Chicago, Ferris and his friends Cameron and Sloane find beauty and mystery in the art within. Throughout the visit, Cameron's red Gordie Howe jersey adds a contemporary, sports culture reference to the high culture of the museum.
In my painting, Cameron stares into Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" and finds himself questioning the meaning of life itself as he peers deep into Seurat's pointillist brush marks.


Note: Gordie Howe played with the Detroit Red Wings and scored 801 goals during his time in the NHL.

“Cameron Meets Seurat” was exhibited at The Other Art Fair in Chicago in September 2018, the Fabrik Contemporary Art Expo in Los Angeles in October 2018, and at The Other Art Fair Los Angeles at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica in October 2018.
