Perception is a multifaceted and complex subject. Being visual learners and creators, perception is something that all artists are familiar with. Yet, everyone sees the world differently as the understanding of any image is in the “eye of the beholder.” However, we also understand and comprehend differently due to our psychological, socio-cultural, political, or religious make-up. Therefore, something can be blocking or impeding our view visually and physically as well as impeding our understanding and stance on life mentally.
Within this series, the focus is on perception in a variety of ways. In some images, the artist has blocked the view by causing us to look through something, almost like a veil. In other images, he shows the same scene or concept in which the one scene has been transformed, morphed, or shifted from one picture to the next or within the same picture. For Keith Sharp, it’s all a matter of how we look at life.
