New Sharon Church Rd. 24

stamer

I chose this painting not for what I see in it, but for what I don’t. It confuses me. There is an object in the upper right hand corner, which appears to be a road, but it would certainly be out of place in the scheme of the painting if it was a road. This painting is different from Stamer’s other works, which are mostly landscapes, and makes me wonder what the inspiration for this painting was. I wonder if the painting is a reflection of the artist’s feelings about the area, rather than the area itself. I also wonder why this painting has so much more distortion than the others. Is it purely aesthetic, or is there something more complex than a landscape here, and the viewer is meant to wonder?
