LAST MONTHS ARTIST
June 7th – July 4th
For sometime now, I have been thinking about what my artist statement is… for truly, my art is the statement.
Images and words,
separating and uniting.
As pieces of a puzzle, so are we.
Pieces of life unified.
“do or do not
there is not try”
Canadian artist Shannon Lightfoot is a profound visual story teller and his entirely unique technique is the culmination of 19 years of development. A scroll saw is used to first cut the images into the board. Then, upon paint application, Shannon is able to choose the elements of the story that he wishes to become the primary and secondary focus of the viewer. From afar the portrait appears to be two dimensional; however, as the viewer soon discovers, a whole story unfolds before the eye as the cutlines reveal images and words hidden at a distance. It is this unique quality that lends such power to a Lightfoot piece…. A portrait is never simply a portrait, and a landscape is much more than a view, these images grow to become the transcription of a story.
