…an archaic visual metaphor as my personal vision
Here’s my thesis: The primitive tilting-up of the ground plane forces an artificial “space-stacking” that is very different from vanishing-point perspective. It allows for surface arrangements of shapes that have intuitive correspondences.
Most of my art journey has not been about developing a style as such but chasing an ideal. The ideal has been slippery, so I have explored different techniques and solutions. Rendering realism has not been a goal since early in my art journey. But the space-stacking arrangement threads through my most serious work.
“Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.” “The truth is too simple: one must always get there by a complicated route.”
