Golden Age 2 (2017)

Subject: People
Tags: Dark, Dance, Movement, Community

Original painting in oil on gesso panel. 

"'Golden Age 2' depicts a group of hippie-like figures performing a round dance. The painting was made quickly with the loose forms reflecting the flowing movement of the subject. Bright colours have been muted by a dark purple glaze and a layer of grainy dark paint partially obscures the image. The painting makes reference to the utopian idealism of the mid-20th century counter-culture and presents an unresolved view of a hedonistic happening. Can be hung unframed."

Ed Saye’s searching images offer a contemplative reflection of atmospheric locations. Saye makes use of found photographs and intuitive editing techniques to lend his painting a familiar yet slightly anomalous feel.  The use of warm hues and fragmented detailing softens the narrative of each piece and leaves an air of enigma. The ambiguous choice of image, leaves an unsettling doubt about the tone of the scene; it may be an image reminiscent of family vacations besides an intentional absence which seemingly haunts the scene. This balance creates a strong sense of uncertainty and recreates the same specious quality as memory.  In turn, the viewer is left to interpret a space made equivocal through compositional tensions and pleasing handlings of light and tone.
