The Pier

12×16 acrylic
“The image was a photograph with this just surreal sky. I took that surrealism to the next level emphasizing the shapes and colors, both in the sky and the foreground. What the image is became less important and one might struggle to figure out what all the items are, leaving the colors and shapes the important items.
My favorite styles of work are both impressionism and pop art. Where I love the style of most impressionism art, I find their subject matter boring at times. The pop art genre I like because of the identifiable items, with the simplifying in technique, be it silk screen or brain name objects, and just the plain audacity of the genre.
My favorite artist is Edmund Hopper, not only because of the use of acrylic, but because of the light and dark play in most of his work, with the illusion of detail also in play.” – Brian
