He paints balls. I wasn't sure why I was so drawn to them. They are brilliant in color, simple in shape....after all, they are just balls...but I loved looking at them. Perhaps its the eternal fascination with the roundness of the Earth, the planets, watching my son's soccer games, my daughter's first word...."ball." The ball is a perfect shape.
In describing why he has painted balls for over 2 decades, John Gibson provides no answer. I came to realize that sometimes Art requires no "answer." Sometimes to just look and enjoy is enough.
