Lost in Nowhere 2 by San-T Lost in Nowhere 2 by San-T
The question is, nowhere – no where or now here?

This is one of the finished pieces that came out of this process [link]
You can see them all in the “Straight Lines” folder in my gallery [link]

As I have stated before, for the longest time I struggled with creating a straight line, I felt like something in my soul was breaking and there for I have stuck to my circular compositions. This is my attempt to break free of that mental constraint and push myself out of my comfort zone.

Hope you like the series, feedback is very much appreciated!

Paint and collage on 22x28” / 71x56cm bristol paper
Mostly done in acrylic paint.

My process for this series:

First, Excellent job with the color scheme. I'm not color blind, lol, but there are three colors here that I'm love with in regards to how you used them: red, grey, and white. I see them everywhere and they work well. Second, The final product, reminds me of this Transformer (Gen. 1) character called, "Metroplex". When he is transform into a city, he looks like your painting. He's illustrated with these similar colors. Three, I know you wrote that you struggle with creating straight lines. Which I think you did an excellant job. If I may, should there be a signature here, it would be the way you use your lines, should it be that cicular design is your thing. Lastly, was it your intention to create a "subliminal" piece? lol, j/k. I write this cause of two given patterns I see throughout your excellant piece: First, the 2 paired dots with a smaller dot below it (almost dipicting a Dumo-Kuh or a cartoony spirit), and Second, human like images, and landscape settings images seen thorughout your work.

The color scheme is a little deceiving, in a way there are all the primal colors.. just in tones, tints and shades. I completely agree with you that white, black, grey and red almost always look great together, but it's the light washes of other colors that give the depth. I'm also in love with grey that has a touch of any other color in it, especially purple.

I quite enjoy the description you gave about the piece, it's great that different people see different things in my pieces. One of the other description that I got was space scene with satellites, and it quite stuck with me. Somewhat of a futuristic feeling with destruction which is an idea within itself that is worth exploring.

Also I want to mention that what you did there, with the cartoony spirit, can be quite disruptive to the artist. Once something seen, it can not be unseen... and if it wasn't intended, it can cause problems in the creative process. I have encountered that few times and the major ones still haunt me >.<
I personally don't mind, I can shake off most of those things, just be careful..

Anyway thank you for your comment! ^^

I'm so sorry about that comment. I should have been more considerate towards your skills and abilities as a artist. So sorry about that. I apologize. My only explanation is: "self value" and I'm a collector. It's a bit crazy, but I was able to relate with your piece on whole other level, and fell in love with it now and forever. I will try harder, next time, to control my excitement before writing. Again sorry for any inconvenience, stress, and/or any "trauma", that I may have possibly cause to you. I'm probably stretching it, but I just want you to know (cause I don't know you) that I'm being thoughtful and open-minded with you. And I'll still be a fan of yours. Ciao

Oh my... As I mentioned, I don't mind.. It's just one of those things that they don't teach you at school and it can be quite helpful lol
The fact that I even said anything about it at all is exactly because you seemed open minded and thoughtful with your comments, and I thought it's a useful tip for the future =]
