The Amazing “Lifestyle” Paintings of Artist Irene Resnick

October 6, 2009

As a painter, I want to portray the lifestyles of ordinary people doing ordinary things. In today’s society our world has become smaller and more complex. We see things through the eyes of politicians, good and bad leaders, and the complexity of politics and wars going on all over the world. We are bombarded by picture over our television and the internet. Voices over or radios and photos’ in our papers’ “the good, bad and ugly”.

As our world becomes smaller and more homogenized, those unique societies will become obsolete. Old tool will become mechanized and technology will takes over. Old customs will be discarded. Western customs and habits will become the norm. All will be lost. This is happening at a very fast pace.

I have had the privilege of traveling to many parts of the world. I have traveled to remote areas that most people have not had the opportunity to see up close. At that particular time in my life I loved photography.

I was particularly drawn to people and their activities – their beautiful faces, postures and costumes; village life and city life and particularly the children. I was very discreet and took mostly candid shots. I wanted to capture people participating in their everyday life. I have since converted these photographs to canvas by painting the shots I have taken over the years.
