THE VILLAGE LIFE
As an artist who has worked in various mediums and different fields of art, I have found that working with simple forms, shapes and the use of chiaroscuro (light and dark) style of painting has enabled me to capture the basic elements of life and the world I have lived in. Most of the oil paint is applied using my fingers, similar to my use of pastel, which allows me to sculpt and blend the oil paint and have hands on feel. Although I have had many influences for my art, this series which I call (THE VILLAGE LIFE/SLICE of LIFE SERIES) comes from the number of years I spent as a model, actor, and illustrator and being lucky enough to travel to various locations in the world. I always enjoyed the way people would react and sometimes interact with the photo shot as if they were posing themselves. The images that attract me and I choose to paint, are people in their daily chores and living life. I tried to capture both a whimsical and yet a sensitive slice of life which is ageless. I have chosen to leave my subjects featureless so as to allow the viewer to project their own imagination onto the rainbow of characters in my paintings. I hope you get both a sense of (de’ja vu) and joyfulness when viewing my artwork and would like to add my art to your environment and collection.If you see an image on my regular website (www.williamcain.com) that you would like me to make available thru Imagekind.com please send me a message.
