Tessar Lo has just added a new print to his online shop. “Lapin Lapin” is 12″ x 15″ signed and numbered in an edition of 20 for $100. I like the writeup that he gives on the site about this painting:
lapin lapin was the first painting i did after my move back to toronto. it started on a night when half of my room still resembled a junk yard. i was tired of cleaning and the move had taken a lot out of me. i had not painted then, for what must have been about three weeks; for someone who paints on almost a nightly basis, i was not very happy. i had to paint and i needed to escape somewhere. picking up a tube of yellow paint, i started to squeeze directly on this 48 x 60â€³ canvas taunting me. it became a journey into a world that i felt i had lost for so long; making this painting brought back a feeling reminiscent of childhood discovery.
i now paint with the hope that my work touches people in the same way. that they can look into my pictures and experience something viscerally without the inhibitions of â€œadulthoodâ€ or â€œbeing normalâ€.
lapin lapin marked a big turning point in my painting. i hope to share it with you.
