Open Narratives / New Paintings

Painting is such a personal art form and every viewer will bring their own thoughts and vision to any work. Picasso said he wanted his paintings to fend for themselves when they left his studio. They took on a new significance from that point, his interaction was over – a new relationship starts with the buyer and his viewers. An Open Narrative in painting is where the viewers are dependent  to interpret the story of painting or to decipher meaning. You could argue that this happens with all artwork, as the viewer can take whatever they want from the work, and disregard any personal statements on offer. Thus the artwork cannot perform its true function: interaction without the viewer.

OPEN NARRATIVES/ NEW PAINTINGS  will open June 25th  friday night @ 6pm

This is going to be a great show – make sure you come along to the opening if you are in the Wellington region. I’ll be there giving my support.
