Hyperrealism - by Dutch Artist Tjalf Sparnaay (works in oil on canvas)
"... Tjalf Sparnaay's paintings hit the retina like bolts of lightning in a clear blue sky. No other painter confronts us quite so clearly with ordinary objects that we hold dear.
Since 1987, he has been working on his imposing oeuvre, constantly seeking new images that have never been painted before. What he calls Megarealism is part of the contemporary global art movement of Hyperrealism, and Sparnaay is now considered one of the most important painters working in that style. ..."
i love to read but i write more than i read. i like to look at art and learn about history but i'd rather be making something. i'm the type of person that finds answers in the creative process. it always amazes me when i find something within my own soul that someone from long ago has already discovered. it makes me want to travel back in time and drink a glass of wine with them.
there are many ways to feed your mind. we are all unique. we all learn in different ways. to not be numb is my way - to experience and grow and touch and feel. to create.
i hope to leave something behind when i leave this place one day.
