Making a Connection

Bradley Shoemaker’s goal is to get viewers to identify with a scene and think “I know that feeling,” or “That’s exactly how I remember it.” “I want to bring an intangible feeling about that moment?something that comes out of me,” he says. “I think all the great artists, Wyeth in particular, have done that. Wyeth’s quietness connects with something in your memory?retrospection, a sense of melancholy and lonliness. It brings you to a thoughful state of mind.”
