Imagery and Iconography




Art

Long walks in the woods are truly inspiring; everything is alive. It is art at the purest level- raw and primal. It’s sensual and beautiful - there’s death, decay, birth and rebirth. -JS

About


In the last ten years, living on a nature preserve has had a profound visual effect on my work. After living in seclusion for some time, I began a series of paintings and sculptures initially inspired by feelings and imagery experienced there.

These influences were coupled with my already established love of Baroque art, religious subject matter, and Greek myth. At this time I also began to aggressively explore the use of alternative, often organic, materials like wax, tar, wood, and fabric, to achieve a more elemental and tactile connection with the work. The exploration of ideas about memory, history, and the passage of time have become an important part of this process.

Besides the organic quality to my work, it often includes combinations of anatomical imagery, romantic symbolism, and religious iconography. Some of the works are created using deep supports, like boxes, that stand out from the wall and assert themselves in the viewer's space. In many cases, the physical qualities of the work are meant to suggest the physical weightiness associated with emotion.

Collaged materials, including fabrics and printed matter, contribute to the initial surface of the work. After this weathered, heavily worked, abstract surface is established, the organic qualities of the wood, wax, and earth communicate a feeling of timelessness.

I believe that the processes of building, weathering, eroding and layering are important to the work's identity -- it creates a history that can be traced, investigated, and experienced by the viewer.
