Subtitled - Ed Naark on Sunset Promenade 2012.

The legacy of this painting also includes the comfort in knowing it's one artwork that nobody could ever attempt to copy because of it's complex nature. I believe driven by God's will - to start and finish a force inside... To produce absolute uniqueness as I've never done before, and never will again!

This painting was so full on - to be consistent throughout was the greatest challenge - using only 000 fine hair brushes - to paint it, three and a half years the canvas was blank for one year, being full of apprehension, then one year of preparations from sketches on cheap paper, then the set up on canvas.

Consider playing with Dangerous Lines ...
Creating unique images between reality and fantasy each face barely contains content - yet presents the person intended - yes I call them Dangerous Lines that in a miraculous manner evolved, while each line could have failed. Achieving an impression of a vertical reality in each body especially facial - whether male or female, young or old - love it or hate it, remember it's all a perception of a fantastical day visualised by me for the future, the year 2112 in a hundred years. Simply to highlight my life at a fundraising event on a promenade, as history can repeat.

One day it may simply be admired for it's pure intention only - or it's creativity from abstract lines to expressionism - it does not matter - for me it was all about the method to execute, through physical and mental pain - developing each shape and dimension especially the contour - which all may just as well have made no visual or practical sense and that is why they were - Dangerous Lines in my mind.

Why not admire the painting for this - if nothing else, perhaps before 2112 and as a footnote : for you all ... I could only imagine, that it may look fascinating from a vast distance - try it out one day.

The explanation in detail, 2012. In my own words, Philippe de Kraan.
