Justin Ramsey

Will Drum for Fire.

One of my few "realistic" still lives (composed of sentimental objects). This is an original oil painting on gallery wrap canvas with painted sides that are 1-3/8". Amusing, I found the question "why did justin west paint will drum for fire." in my web search statistics... well, the objects... 1) plush elephant with semi-realistic features and melancholy visage, 2) paint brushes as a way to conjure visual music and magic, 3) a heart shaped rock found in the Southeast desert on a grueling ride, 4) a self-made origami samurai helmet that reminds me of the "be a warrior and a scholar" quote from "The Hurricane" (another story of strength in solitude), 5) books that have provided wisdom and inspiration as a foundation, 6) the unlit candle calling for light... so much of me resonates in this piece and you will have to pry directly for more...
