Product History

Van Gogh - Starry Night

Van Gogh's infamous "Starry Night", painted in 1889 while he was voluntarily living in the asylum in Saint-Remy. That what may have been the most difficult year of his life drove him to produce perhaps his most famous and beloved painting, is a testament to the manner in which he chose to deal with his inner demons. During this time he became interested in painting the firmament and other nature scenes in a manner that sings praise to Creation. He utilized his visual imagery method to accomplish this work on the subject. Whether intentional or not it seems representative of his personal need to find the light in his own darkness. During this time not only did he discover the luminous power of darkness, he also found the essence of its very being to express in his unique developing brand of symbolism while juxtaposing its constancy balanced with flux and tapping its sheer vitality all at once.

The elements of Van Gogh's "Starry Nights" painting reminds Wanda Hope Carter of something that her mother has continually told her throughout her lifetime, that being to "Keep looking up!" Van Gogh's spectacular display of the stars lighting up the darkness to her represented the light of God that her mother was referring to with her reminder to look towards something higher and greater than oneself. Any contemplation of the heavenly skies brings to her mind anomalies that she has seen in the skies over the years. Today we look at the stars and wonder about the same natural and spiritual aspects that Van Gogh and his contemporaries did in his time. Now we have been exposed to the possibility that earth is being or has been visited by aliens to the point that it has become a mainstream subject of curiosity. This made her wonder if Van Gogh had seen unusual activity in the sky and had captured it with his paint brushes and canvases.

Van Gogh has always been one of Wanda Hope Carter's favorite artists and after she visited Europe and saw large collections of his work in Amsterdam, he decidedly became her most favorite. Because of the turbulent times in her life she feels a connection to his troubled soul and how he reached out in unconventional methods to express the emotions that he found in all things.
