Uncle

Uncle

This painting is number eight in my rural American youth series. It is an exploration in both design and the throbbing and pulsating life in both the young child and his young uncle. I decided to take a somewhat naive approach to the handling of the material, ordering it in a rather flat design, and was very interested in exploring the weathered look of the old farmhouse, the disorientating perspective to animate the violent reaction of the toddler to being contained and caressed, as he bucked to be free to explore the world on his own. This artwork was created in studio from several shorter studies, and one longer study of both the child and young man.
