Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

“Love is paying attention” -Fairfield Porter, Artist

“We never look at just one thing, we are always looking at the relation between things and ourselves. Our vision is continually active, continually moving, continually holding things in a circle around itself, constituting what is present to us as we are.”
-John Berger, Art Critic

This work is about domestic life and the memories attached to that- how memories influence you and yet are so unclear and ever-changing. The primary focus of this work are my two children and home life. Everyone was once a child, so everyone has experienced these universal emotions and memories. As a child, everything is vivid and intense, emotions are high and low, and everything is new. For better or worse your home life influences you for the rest of your life. For me, this work reconciles the differences between idealism and reality. There is idealism which is something most people strive for but then there is the reality of the experience. It was the painter Fairfield Porter who said, "There is no conflict between reality and ideality." This is because everything is different and always changing and that is certainly true of life.
