Meaning in Painting? Regarding Still Life With Rabbit and Egg

The “Meaning” Question.

A fellow artist, Sandra Neary, asked me about the meaning of this still life composition.  In particular, why is the egg larger than the rabbit?

Meaning: Drawing with Rabbit and Egg

Dinosaur Egg & Pygmy Rabbit?

Well, all sorts of silly responses bounced around my head.  For instance, what if the egg were a dinosaur egg and the rabbit was a pygmy rabbit?  All birds are dinosaurs so it could be true.  Alright; it is a chicken egg and a replica of a rabbit netsuke.

Short Term Answer.

However, the question was put forward. And, I thought I’d quote part of the answer I gave.

“I chose them because they were all white objects..I was studying light and form. But, the incongruity of the rabbit and egg amused me. However, the narrative is sending me places I don’t want to go. It was the form that I was after. Sometimes you can’t escape narrative. Though, I like the ambiguity.”

Margaret Stermer-Cox Fine Art Facebook Page, 1 November 2018

And, What About Meaning?

However, I did start thinking about the meaning of this composition and, perhaps two dimensional art in general.

And, I came to the conclusion that it is reasonable to ask about the meaning of a painting or drawing.  After all, the arts, including the visual arts, are a means of communication.  Therefore, it would be natural to want to understand a piece of art.

Meaning: Painting of Rabbit and Egg

How I Select Items For This Still Life.

That being said, this artist, (ahem, yes, I mean me), is prone to selecting subjects for reasons other than symbolic or iconic meaning.

Shape and Value.  For example, when I selected items for this particular still life set up, I chose them for their shapes and tonal value. To explain, I was interested in studying form free from the distracting influence of color. So, I selected the items because they were a neutral, light or white color.

Geometry.  Furthermore, I was interested in the basic geometric shapes depicted here.  The egg cup, for example, is a modified column.  The egg is like an elongated sphere.  The rabbit has similar rounded forms.

Personal Interest.  And, I liked each of the items.  They’re from my personal collection of knick-knacks.

Still Life Set Up.

So, once I selected the items for my still life study, I had to arrange them.  Keeping in mind composition, I set about placing my knick-knacks.  You will notice that clustered the three together in a sort of triangular shape.  It is like they are in huddle over to the left.

By clustering the items to the left, I set up a problem of how to balance the right side.  My response was to see if line and small shifts in tone will be enough to achieve balance.

Meaning: Still Life with Rabbit & Egg. Reference Photo
I am including a photo of the still life set up so that you may get an idea of what I was studying. However, I drew and painted from the life; not the photo.

Academic; No Spontaneity?

Hmmm, you might think, this all sounds academic.  Well, I think it is at this stage of the process.  That is to say, I am purposeful in my set up; not spontaneous.  In other words, I’m experimenting and teaching myself by doing.  I take the rules and principles of composition, apply them and then see what happens.  The process is like an informed trial and error.

Learn By Studying & Doing.

You see, one reads the books, studies the demos, and takes the workshops, in an effort  to learn how to draw and paint. But, along the way, one needs to do the work.  So, I start with the principles and then go about the process of learning how to use them.

That is, I need to try out ideas using pencil or brush on paper.  At such times, I feel compelled to ask the “what if” questions and see what happens.  In other words, I’m studying the art of drawing and painting by doing.

The Concept of “Meaning” Deserves More Study.

So, let us go back to this idea of meaning in drawing and painting.   As I am writing and considering this question, I realize that meaning might need to be studied just as form, value or color.  So, with that, I think I will close with the thought that this ought to be the beginning of a series of articles about meaning in paintings.

What Does It Mean To You?

And, a final word about this particular still life.  Could it mean more than my intentions?  Well, as the viewer or receiver of the visual message, you bring your own experience to the conversation.  So, yes, it could mean something entirely different to you.  And, that is just fine with me!

PS.  Note with the variation below, I changed a couple of things.  Does meaning change as well?  What do you think?

Meaning: Drawing of Rabbit and Egg

The post Meaning in Painting? Regarding Still Life With Rabbit and Egg appeared first on Margaret Stermer-Cox.

Easy Power

Easy power.

 

I heard these two words during my tennis lesson on Saturday and they stopped me mid-swing. Easy power. What we’re looking for is easy power, Gail, tennis instructor said.  I asked her to clarify. She went on to explain that the racquet does the work if your body and mind are lined up in the right position. Envision hitting the ball, having your eye on the ball, racquet pointed in correct direction, relaxed grip prepped on handle, follow through on your swing. Basically, show up ready and your body will follow. Subtext: don’t try so hard. Oh, that.

 

This is up for me right now. The trying. I’ve had a lot of big deadlines, larger projects and commitments and less time for painting and creating just because. This is a blessing and there are no complaints. And it’s a newer way of working where days really count, afternoons playing with a canvas that go nowhere feels more frustrating than fun discovery.  And guess what? This is not a fun or productive way of producing art when the clock is ticking! Twice in the last week I’ve spent hours working on two different pieces that failed. When I say fail, I mean, really fail, the stuff that doesn’t get posted, shipped or shown. The stuff that gets painted over and this is coming from someone who is very familiar, comfortable even, in the messy middle, where it seems unsalvageable but if you keep going, the magic happens. There’s a place past that where canvases go to die and when I am on deadline, full admission, I’m not ok with that. Am I trying too hard? Yes. Am I rushing? Maybe. Am I full of expectations of what it “should” look like? Definitely. Am I relaxed? Hell no! What did the tennis lady say? Easy power. My new mantra.

 

I’m not sure how to incorporate this into the creative life yet—I did just hear it yesterday. But this is it. I know it. Easy power in showing up. Prep my space, my mind, my research, my tools, my end game as best I can.  Give myself more time so I don’t choke at the 11th hour. Have plenty of reference tools so I’m not freestyling it willy nilly. Those professional tennis players are hitting that ball with purpose and precision because they have been taught technique. They can go wild on the court because they have years of training. Easy power. There is grace in those words for me that I need to hear right now.

 

The creative career is fraught with clichés about artists. I’ve tried not to subscribe to those myths. The flip side is that I don’t often take a deliberate break to recharge or reassess where I am in my painting or my business.  I’m the queen of just keep going. Isn’t that how life works? Yes, but.  I’m feeling the need to stand back a little the way I do for my Saturday lessons and correct my form, listen to an instructor or attend a workshop, incorporate new techniques, be a student. Do the necessary prep work in advance, show up and be relaxed in the outcome.

 

Easy power. Xoxo
