Too Far From the Sun
When artist Neal Walsh and I had the opportunity to create an installation together we spoke about what each of us wanted to do and pretty quickly came up with what we titled "Too Far From the Sun". We did not speak, to my recollection, about what any of it meant. My favorite part is the sense of discovery from the viewer. Without direction viewers usually looked inside the hole on the paintings surface. It was then that they questioned the reality of the vision presented to them. Was there really a table, chairs, grass and place settings behind the wall they were looking through, or was it a two dimensional image? If it was "real", was it really full size? And, what does this now mean?
