Embracing Art:  The Foreground vs. The Background


We are a firm believer that what we share in an artistic piece can say alot.  The amount of detail we put in the background of a painting or sketch can really draw the viewer in or not.  The piece of art becomes more believable with the more detail we place.

Whereas a full attentive foreground gives an exclamation point to the viewer.  It is a close up and personal approach and show un-apologetically what the artwork is about.

Most artists are pushing and pulling against themselves versus what they know and what they do not know.  We can enjoy the struggle and see the dialogue in their collection.  Nonetheless, we as artists are constantly finding our way.

We have been enjoying the series Artists Project at the Met Museum.
