Painting up for auction: Pearl Diver’s Dream c.2011

This is a remix of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s 1665 masterpiece ‘Girl with Pearl Earring’. It is somewhat of a satirical piece which plays on the pearl earring, which in this version holds the universe. There is a Japanese pearl diver at the top left corner who is free diving to collect the highly sought after pearl, hence the title ‘Pearl Diver’s Dream’. There is an underlying sense of humor in my work that sometimes does require a quick explanation. That said there is something wonderful in witnessing viewers interpretations of this painting when they do not know the background story. In a playful way I am also acknowledging the history of painting and the master’s who paved the road for us today.

I will be donating a portion of the proceeds to hep with the recent devastation in the Philippines. shelterbox will be my first choice, click here to go to their website

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
