So why am I reviewing and diving into a book on the Wyeth Tradition? Because the artists like Pyle, Wyeth and Rockwell understood how to bring out the wonder of the human condition, the human form. How to tell a wonderful story about humans in their seemingly un-wonderfulness.
That's what I want to accomplish with my art.... I guess... but maybe in reverse.
I want to take wonderful, unusual scenarios of the space age; and show the human side of things. How the humans involved in wonderful things are wonderful not because they are in an exciting scenario, but are wonderful because they are just humans doing their best. Somehow I need to be able to show that the technical and scientific side of things , while exciting because its technical achievement, but mostly because it's humans pulling it off!
