evolution ...

the road was long and the way was winding but the view was spectacular and the destination great ...
these dready art divers don't seem all that much different from the version 2 below that went before, but it is ... very much so; just the change to sand on the bottom has brightened it, more fish has given it more life and grouper adds the whimsical touch ...
that grouper has a big rahted mouth!
Love!

collaboration ...

i think that art works well in collaboration with others ...
there were at least 6 people mulling around the creation of this dready not including the artist himself ...
and here I am loving the end result and loving all the people that participated in the fun and frolic ... frolic's not a very west indian/caribbean word eh; but you know I gamboled through the halls of schools in england and canada where people do the odd bit of frolic-ing.
i've done this image for a ride in the cayman islands with team garmin-cervelo, where local riders get to time trial with the international riders.
i've said it before and i'll say it again doing dready is the most fun i can have with my clothes on ...
peace and love!

less as more!

the whole idea of less as more ...
the essence of the thing, rather than the thing ...
and then you throw a chicken into the eye-line, like you're writing a scene for 'The Hangover' ... just to amuse the brain. think that's what dready art's all about.
life!

deep blue sea sea sea!

i first learned to dive, or at least first dove, with bella, in negril; we stayed at home sweet home ... which was sweet and not very much like home ...
now i live and sometimes i dive, in the cayman islands. its a beautiful place; a first world nation in a caribbean setting ...
this dready is part of a series of six, based around water sports, for a group of caribbean wide resort clothing shops ... there are some little elements of cool in it that I like; the single fish, the bottom of the boat, the fishing like with the red yellow and green bait on the end ...
Hmmm!

the printed mounted and framed image on the wall ... the finished product, signed and delivered; taken, as it were, to the culmination of the art.
it's a nice feeling.
art needs that, any art; the right frame, the right mat ... the right wall.
in the case of the dready i like to leave a little space between the image and the mat when they're done on paper: I like that space, i think it brings the eye in to the art ... on canvas i like the visual of a shadow box frame with space around the art ... but you know, maybe that's just the artist in me talking ...
easy!
