-Description- This painting was one of the first paintings that I did featuring the "twin towers" in the world trade center terrorist attack on 9/11 as well as one of my later "ape series" paintings of the year 2012, the birthyear of the "ape series" and "infatuation with 9/11".
I have chosen to include the twin towers and the 9/11 tragedy in my work because it reflects upon a modern tradgedy of my time on this earth that has shaped the way we think about culture, technology, philosophy, religion, and tragedy all in one.
I have included varies "objects" and "motifs" of my "Ape-series" such as:
Ape-men- To signify man as an ape, an animal, an organism just like everything else living on this earth. There is essentially no difference or special inherent importance of man in the sense that all life on earth is essentially biologically very similar.
Cameras- I like to include cameras in my painting to show the painting scene as a set, because just like my blunt view of "Man as an Ape" I view the world [or universe] or anything that man percieves in the physical world as being quite simply "a set" because anything and everything can happen given the right circumstances. The world is a set and the camera is a means to portray this, as a way of everything being watched over and carefully in balance by the laws of physics.
Doorways- I use the doorway as another way of portraying the "world is a set" idea, especially since this idea is heavily inspired by the 90's film "The Truman Show" and I use it as an esxape from the set to w/e lies "beyond" what we dont already know.
Satellites- This is a very recent addition to my work. I am starting to use sattelites casually to represent an "entitity" , but not in the same sense as a "god" or a "goblin" or a "gnome" or beast of the jungle, but rather a piece of man made logical technology to portray a higher force in connection with my cameras in my paintings. Kinda a way to represent the supernatural and mysticism of my sets in a logical and technological fashion.
Caves - I have always been very keen on using caves in my paintings because I am very attracted to the idea of primitivism and the "raw" and "organic". This was my first painting to use the entrance/exit of a cave as the center piece as a world of its own for the viewer to look out of and to see the world the way it really is, but still behind the doorway.
To wrap this up, this painting signifies man looking out of the cave [a safe zone, or primitive origin] and onlooking at the twin towers under attack right in front of him, with nothing but a long drop into empty sky below him with the only escape, or entrance to the truth [the doorway] alongside the wall, far off into the distance, past the tragedy of the twin towers.
The camera is documenting this realization from primitive origins and unknown truths with unspeakable terror and barbarism inbetween, while the "satellite" is monitoring the situation as a logical "entity" floating in mid air.
Man is an Ape, and the Earth is a Set.
I have also done a time lapse painting video in which I have condensed 10+ hrs or so of work into around 7 min.
