Jimmy Law – Revelations

“Revelations” is a body of work that essentially deals with the viewer’s ability to discover that which is hidden. As an artist who focusses intensely on progression and constantly strives to better my craft, I have been slowly introducing “obscurity” in more and more of my work. Sometimes only subtly and other times more aggressively. The ability to obscure and reveal at the same time is an aspect or concept that fascinates me and perhaps the viewer’s ability to see beyond obscurity, even more so. I often work with large palette knife which is a very unforgiving tool, but it has the ability to produce some very distinctive effects and marks that simply cannot be duplicated by anything else. I aim to master these tools constantly while experimenting with the concept of obscuring the features of my subjects. The viewer is forced to question the identity and state of the subjects, and that is my aim.
