"The Material of All" by Joey Gates 2018

One of a kind original oil painting.

This painting was conceived in the moment by the artist allowing a stream of consciousness to guide the creation of flowing shapes. The artist balances the surreal with iconic representational shapes to allow the viewer to detach from our reality for a moment.

Artist Statement:

The truth about reality, is that it’s not what we think it is. We all subconsciously feel the tension of this, so we choose to embrace what’s in front of us. Illusion or not.

Most art in our world reinforces the consensus view of reality. That art calms us or makes us think about how we fit into what we call “normal”.

However, my art attempts to untether the viewer from this world for juat a moment. I create forms that catch light and shadow similar to our reality. The forms look as if they could be familiar. However, they are allusive and curious. My art work is honest, because reality is also allusive and curious.

A truth worth celebrating.

The art is varnished to protect the work. Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity from the artist.
