All of the paintings in this series of Hawaiian escape dwellings have one thing in common. They represent a particular person's or couple's perception of an ideal tropical fantasy refuge. Some perceptions catalyzed the spirit of youth, romance or tranquility according to Thor. Others radiate adventure, living on the edge or an ultimate adult playground. Individual, yet sharing a common thread.
I find there is a story in at least one of these paintings that a viewer will truly identify with. They envision themselves within the canvas portal actually living out a certain fantasy.
The paintings have many layers of experiences says Thor. There is the initial visual impact and response to colors or composition. Then there is the story behind the painting that draws the viewer closer into the picture where they can become part of that story. Again, there are the details to discover through the pieces that further support the story, believability and complexity of the image.
Last, but not least, the viewer can create their own personal story behind the painting. I have seen many people personalize the art this way, interpreting symbols and details that illustrate their life and personality as they may choose in their perfect tropical place of refuge. As the artist, I see my own paintings a different way each time, after hearing the amazingly creative, touching, and personal interpretations collectors have shared with me over time.
