ABOUT THIS ART:
There is now this neutral ground in painting and contemporary illustration where elements of fantasy are colored with an emotional temper that seems neither happy nor sad to a beguiled viewer. The two key visuals in this piece by Nathan Spoor are dimensional opposites. We have an elevated island with towers and turrets in the background; on a promontory (or another island?) slightly more visible in the foreground is the figure of a child holding a balloon. It would be tempting to accept all of this as simply a charming variation on certain familiar themes tackled by a host of other painters in the past (Wyeth's "Christina's World, for instance), but Spoor has added a third motif - an umbrella framed within one of the empty spires - which arrests our attention and sends us back to contemplative musings.

ABOUT Nathan Spoor:
Nathan Spoor is an artist and writer living in Los Angeles, CA, whose work is highly regarded by several prestigious collections and publications worldwide.



A practitioner and student of Suggestivism, Spoor’s paintings involve images of transition and growth; fluid narratives that chronicle a world rich with the mystery, joy, pain, and delicate balance of personal and spiritual evolution. Believing that continuous study of technique and process are critical to his own growth as an artist. No image or canvas is too precious to wipe, repaint, and even burn on his own journey to discovery and expression. In this way, Spoor makes a personal and transformative connection with each piece that for him lives on beyond the finished works.



With a writing style that shows an impressive passion and understanding of the arts in context, Spoor continues to bring challenging and informative text to readers of such internationally acclaimed publications as Hi Fructose, BL!SSS, Juxtapoz, Grand Central Press and The Surfer's Journal in an intelligent and educated fashion.
