Bottles And Lemons
Beverley Harper Tinsley
Painting - Watercolor And Graphite
Bottles And Lemons is a loose, wet, layered, messy, blooming, splattered watercolor, mixing crazy colors and showing brushstrokes, bursting with fresh ripe, bright, acid trip colors and offering an abstract exploration of the shapes of bottles and lemons. No lemons were harmed in the making of this painting. I just wanted to try something different.
I suppose this painting fits the definition of semi-abstract, as explained by:
pertaining to or designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art.
And I love this quote by Diane Ackerman.
"Though most of us don't hunt, our eyes are still the great monopolists of our senses. To taste or touch your enemy or your food, you have to be unnervingly close to it. To smell or hear it, you can risk being further off. But vision can rush through the fields and up the mountains, travel across time, country, and parsecs of outer space, and collect bushel baskets of information as it goes. Animals that hear high frequencies better than we do�bats and dolphins, for instance�seem to see richly with their ears, hearing geographically, but for us the world becomes most densely informative, most luscious, when we take it in through our eyes. It may even be that abstract thinking evolved from our eyes' elaborate struggle to make sense of what they saw. Seventy percent of the body's sense receptors cluster in the eyes, and it is mainly through seeing the world that we appraise and understand it. Lovers close their eyes when they kiss because, if they didn't, there would be too many visual distractions to notice and analyze."
Currently priced and available as framed and matted. For photos of the original painting as framed, contact the artist directly. Or better yet, go see it in person at the incomparable St. Mark's Coffee House in Denver, Colorado, where it will be on display along with many of my other works, for the months of March and April 2014.
