Reproduction is an approximation for the real thing.
Sometimes to its advantage, other times less so. Scale is a big factor. At best, works should animate the viewing distance and magnetise the audience in one way or another. A small image naturally forces one to approach…..a device not suited to all. Some prefer the bombast of the big. We are used to sound bites…..time poor, we want the message quick and fast. Contemplation feels too laboured. Perhaps intimacy is less familiar, unless mediated by a techno screen.
My paintings challenge is to slow the process down, in the hope that something will resonate with another.
