Two of Swords
Watercolor and mixed media, 16 " x 20" on paper
By René Capone
.

Opening reception: Friday, June 1, from 5:00 to 9:00 PM
Open House: Saturday, June 2.

"This image is certainly based on tarot card imagery, everything the swords indicate is true. Courage, delicate and precarious balance in adversity. Differences resolved, relief, restoration of peace, truce, a weight off the mind."


"A fascination for the physiological aspect of art pushes me in the direction of the figure and the affect on viewers. The figure to me represents a look inside the mind. Stylistically combining that with imagery of landscape, or abstract notions, I create the scenes and stories. Ideas run strong in my works but color is often the voice. I strive to create a sense of mystery and surrealism.

"My goal is to create honestly and ask others to interpret for them selves the questions that lie in the paintings/drawings. These questions are different for everyone and that is what makes each person look at a piece of art differently. Paintings and drawings can be maps if you let them be.

"Symbols taken from life seem to have profound meaning for everyone as they are seen and used everyday. They're symbolism is tied to ones personal life and have endless possibility's in meaning."

MATTERS OF SIZE
“Cock size doesn’t matter to me. I didn’t start doing those gigantic cocks until the censors let the magazines publish full frontal nudity. I had to come up with something you couldn’t get in a photograph. So those big cocks are all for the other guys — I’m an ass man myself.” — Tom of Finland
