Joe Sinness draws wonderful, bright and vibrating still lifes in pencil; they’re not erotic, though they do trigger our imagination. He combines in his images items found in second hand shops, flowers and jewels to create images build with amazing detail.
This artist from Minnesota creates the still life in reality to be able to take pictures and draw it with his Prismacolor pencils; in addition to the fact that his industrious technique and the results leave us in an awe, Sinness goes beyond including a deep meaning. You know we love everything deep. The American artist does not choose random products, but he’s interested in using objects that reflect society, consumerism and, in special, the will to be rich and famous. “I am interested in how objects and people seeking fame become consumable products, a paradox that sees their artistic endeavors pursuing immortality become disposable and commodified”, he says. Sinnes vibrates and slaps us and our ocasional triviality in the face.
