John Waters

John Waters b.1961, established his career as a professional artist after working as an architect, and his passion for beautiful design, perspective and construction remains evident in this new body of work.
Within this foundation Waters combines and layers a number of visual and conceptual elements such as still life, landscape, and the notion of worlds within worlds. 

MEMENTO
"A sense of awareness of our world fascinates and intrigues me. It assists in creating an enjoyable and rewarding life. Walking through gardens and parks, appreciating dusk and dawn, admiring architecture, and mementoes of valued moments all help elevate this awareness. This series of paintings attempts to share and evoke these contemplative experiences.

In this series of paintings, the gathering, collection and placement of cherished mementos, architectural motifs and hazy landscapes are a reflection and consciousness of memories and interests. These subjects are enigmatically composed with worlds within worlds, paintings and screens moving across the picture plane and layers opening to reveal depths, to inspire consideration of our world, combining intriguing elements in unified paintings."
