FAITH SCOTT JESSUP
My paintings are equal parts invention and description. While the work has a high degree of verisimilitude, realism is not the point. Rather, detailed descriptions of objects is a by-product of sustained observation and contemplation
The images are distillations of lifelong memories whose resonance has altered and shifted with the passage of time. Everyday objects, intimately observed, converse with re-imagined landscapes. I do not consciously collect objects, but many of them have hovered around the edges of my life for decades, to be rediscovered and painted anew.
These symbols of everyday life speak to my attitude about art, the world, and existence. To be quiet, to listen, to touch. To pay attention.
