Impressions, Inside Out
by SHANE PICKERILL,
of the Greater Chicago Area
In this series of paintings, I'm painting in a reactionary, stream of
conscious style. I have no pre-planned sketch. I just begin
painting lines and shapes, and I continue to build layer upon layer. I'm
interested in layering, and in creating a sense of depth through this
layering. The free form, abstract style allows me to physically put my
body sensations and feelings into my brush strokes. It's both scary and exhilarating.
It's a welcome break from the precision of my CAD and 3D computer work.
In my current 3D work, I'm creating a series of product parodies. I was
a huge fan of Wacky Packages as a child. Back then, I didn't own
a computer or color printer. There weren't even color copy machines!
I hand-drew in pencil a number of my own parodies on white mailing
labels. Creating this series is the fulfillment of my childhood dream of
creating my own parody series.
All of my work is about color, energy, and about creating unique &
exciting imagery that leaves a lasting impression with viewers.
Why title my show "Lasting Impressions, Inside Out"? Because
my paintings reveal my inner self through bodily sensations and intimate
feelings, whereas my humorous parodies links my computer graphics skills to
the external youthful environment of hi tech video games and animation.
