Art by Nathan Spoor.

nathan-spoor03Fantastical and dreamlike paintings filled with detail and color that suggests some sort of narrative.
The “suggestivism” style was something he started in graduate school and he describes it as “an intuitive process of allowing ideas to pool and then connecting with the more innovative or strong moments and nurturing them into reality.”
In the larger sense, the work as a series is opening up a narrative about a world being created and explored by a young boy and girl.
I see the girl creating the world around her as she sleeps, dreams, thinks and grows.
The boy is more or less discovering the land and engaging its mystery. I am starting to see it as more than a simple boy meets girl story, which is how I’d begun to see it the first few years.
Well, either I’m going to over-explain what I can’t really explain, or we just admit that my mind travels to some other amazing place at night and these are images that I attempt to faithfully capture from those times.
