Terrible People Digital Fine Art By Jaymie Metz
Terrible People is influenced by the way I see most people, not worth the time, not worth the trouble. Viewing the world from a more jaded, distorted perspective, I try to make the people more agreeable with bright colors and fun, exotic settings. Bringing the people to a more fantastic, interesting existence than what the real version of themselves could ever be makes them tolerable, bearable and worth something. The flat nature of the characters and the subject matter is a representation of the flat, non-textured personalities, that they for some reason refuse to even analyze, but put on a pedestal like they are somehow something other than earth shatteringly below average. The minimalism lends itself to the nonevents that are happening all around these terrible people, completely unaware of the big picture of life that includes everyone as well as blinded to the presence of others. Influenced heavily by cartoons, video games, technology, marketing and branding, terrible people brings about a young, juvenile approach towards human interaction and behavior. The childish stance is a reminder of the difference between growing up and growing old, must of us grow old and don’t grow up, despite all the responsibilities. The sporadic graffiti through out the work of art is mimicking the chaotic nature of our thought that have been crafted by the advertising and marketing that has been bombarding us our entire lives. Terrible people everywhere, all created from terrible people. You can shift your perspective though if you want to, you can choose to see the world more colorful and interesting and make your life better through controlling your own thoughts.
