Often times, my paintings are inherent of perspectival lines situated within the context of my irregular shaped canvas. The aim of this is to suggest to the beholder what to think or see on a given picture plane. Its more like an In-between place, where these perspectival line becomes very formal or more landscape oriented. In that case, here are some of the artist I found this week and these works do not necessarily share similar aesthectics with my painting. On the contrary, there are certain intextual discursive network my paintings can relate to in these referential work of art. The images below are works of Francesca Woodman, she is an american photographer known for her black and white self portraits. The chosen photography appear unique in relation to my practice because the doors within the photography activates the entire picture plane. This basically happens when I introduce the vocabulary of perspectival lines in my paintings .
"I'm interested in the way people relate to space,... the best way is to depict there interactions to the boundaries of these spaces. Started doing this with ghost pictures, people fading into flat plane-becoming the wall under wallpaper or of an extension of the wall onto floor."
In the previous week, I decided to revisit painting of a rectangular bed which is coming along really good. I am at the point where I transfer images onto the rectangular bed, in the end, there is not way I can absolutely determine what this project would result in. But because I challenged my to be as free as possible, I can only be optimistic about it. Here is an image of a completed project and what the current project aims to be.
Have a great week.
