I haved mixed feelings about some more photorealistic work… I appreciate it’s technicality and it’s beauty, but often it just feels as deep as the layers of paint….. what’s it saying to me? it feels like, often, all it’s really saying is: Look how good I am at painting…. what else?…. I look at it, go wow, and move on…. and that’s disappointing… photography kinda has that sewn up for me..
Imagine if you had that level of skill and could apply it to pure creation, to exploration and invention…. what could be possible?
So I think, that, to just depict, isn’t interesting enough….. that’s just me… so I hope that I could see it combined into something more interesting and innovative…..
