Painting - Oil On Canvas
this is an original oil painting on canvas, and is freely inspired to
"Morning View" by James Bryron Love, or, more precisely, to the photograph he used as reference for that. You can see the first steps of the creative processs in the videos produced by spangaloo and filmitalk at the times of the MinaGrey partnership, when the website that is now at mina-grey.com was started.
The motivation for the painting was basically giving James a painting tutorial to publish on the one hand, and, on the other hand, produce something unique to reflect on the different possible interpretations and reinterpretations of the same piece of "reality" (a simple picture of an eye).
I think I used a photograph of his eye (not sure) for reference, and proceeded with layers. Because the interesting part of working from a rather pixelled photograph was achieving the Monna Lisa effect, I gave the eye the highest emphasis possible and made it green (a light eye is more interesting for a painter, and I actually saw it green).
The title followed consequently: because this painting watches you wherever your location is, and because of some "inquisitory atmosphere" in the result, I decided to entitle it Karma.
In fact, karma is Sanskrit (कर्मन् - karman) simply means "action". The acception of consequence of the action, that comes with it, is due to the new age reinterpretation of this ancient concept.
Two videos reporting on the creative process of this painting, which actually fell down while still wet - thus feeding the myth of karma in its current acception - and had to be retouched, are now visible on MinaGrey (http://mina-grey.com)'s Youtube channel and on the site's home page.
