Falling Cars

Wesley DeVries's avatar Wesley DeVries

As an artist one of the things I am always trying to do is create something beautiful out of tragedy and misfortune. This piece is all about seeing the movement in the wreckage. Capturing movement is very important in my work, mostly because my own motor skills are limited and painful. My work is often abstract, and I really want the people to see what they see in the painting. The images are often subconscious, and hopefully result in the viewer recalling past experiences or feelings. I am participating in ArtPrize as a Juror's Choice Award winner of the 2016 ACTion Art exhibit, hosted by Artists Creating Together, Inc.
