See "Iowa, Over the River" by featured artisit, TH Giebink in our gallery through early July.
50 years ago, I started to record the sensations of my experience in paint. I’ve since discovered that experience is the circus of the fantastical.
Small Images: From Where I Stood
I wander a lot and sit down sometimes. There I try to record my experience as an image in paint. Sometimes an hour, sometimes eight or anywhere in between (but never more than one sitting). Early on those were largely literal depictions, even if somewhat abstracted. Over the years I found that the literal, for instance blue sky, green grass, photographic perspective, couldn’t get across what I experienced. Perhaps cadmium red clouds set in a viridian green sky better rendered the brilliance of the blue sky and white clouds I was seeing.
Compositions fluxed for the same reasons; the perspective container, as it might be seen in a photograph, no longer pertains to what I’m doing.
