John Gibson is fascinated with the concept of representing 3-D objects on a 2-D canvas, and explores this in his still-life paintings of balls. Though the balls are often striped, Gibson draws from patterns that he encounters in all elements of life, constantly repurposing his established motif. Strongly influenced by Italian painter Giorgio Morandi’s repetitive paintings of vases, each of Gibson’s paintings is a new opportunity to perfect the artistic technique of rendering the spheres. Every large-scale work is focused on exploring reflection, shadow, and curvature, commanding consideration and meditation.
