Pink Tree – Jina Wallwork

The landscape is reduced to basic structures. It is abstracted to simplicity and from a range of colors few are chosen. I can simplify the landscape by only focusing on specific aspects. I focus on the basics of form and structure. I choose to disregard other elements such as, how the light hits each branch. To focus is an act of mental discipline. It would be easy to be swept away with a complete view. It would be overwhelming to depict the complete truth within a single picture. The enormity of viewing a perfect universe, expressing itself through the structure of a tree; this is an enormous truth.

This is also why realism often fails in its depiction. Instead of revealing truth it simply reveals what you expect to see. It doesn’t ask you to see things differently. Realism conforms to your vision through the recreation of an illusion; you believe that you are seeing something other than paint on canvas. It is as though you are telling someone what they expect to hear. This act always encourages others to believe you, until the truth reveals itself. The truth of an image exists on many levels. Therefore, the same image could be painted in many ways and each would contain integrity.
