YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM PAINTING | CIRCLE ART GROUP EXHIBITION | 2012


Two of my works < " I went to a Picasso Exhibition and this is what I saw"> and < " Lifetrap">  were recently shown at the Circle Art Group Exhibition at Community Arts on Gondoon. The Opening Night was very well attended and I answered a lot of questions in regard to my work. People also shared their interpretations of the works and the feelings they invoked in them. It is always interesting to hear what people think, and how they view the work in comparison to my own perception of it. Often the audience is able to see a hidden meaning in the painting, which at the time is not clear to me...
Almost every time though, after reflecting on the comments of the audience, I have to agree with them on their interpretation of the work...especially when I look at the time and circumstances where the work got created. I find this process highly fascinating and intriguing, because it does uncover these invisible elements....elements we as artists aren't even aware of, at the time of creation.
You can't hide from the wonderful, exhilarating and often challenging, but most amazing thing...that is PAINTING.
