Bazzj04, here's what I replied to the same question, on the flickr J.A. group, quite a while ago :
dannybedeoconnor dit : what's with the arrows Jeff? Love your pieces by the way. Thanks. Posté le 27 août 2007 à 9:33 (CEST). ( permalien | modifier | fermer | supprimer le sujet )
Jef Aerosol dit : Well, a lot has already been said about those arrows and i actually seldom reply to the question as I'd much rather leave people to their own interpretations and explanations ! However, here are some of the ideas that have already been expressed about my red arrows, by various people (some by myself !) :
- link between street signs and paintings - very urban, city sign, simple and neat - pointing at some important parts, details... - to emphasize a glaring look, dancing feet, smiles - adding some energy - attracting attention, directing the eye - easily recognizable, spottable, eye catching - second signature, logo, personal trademark, own sign - reference to Francis Bacon's red arrow - reference to Ernest Pignon Ernest who also once used an arrow, a long time ago - reference to Eros, cupidon's arrows, love... - red = blood / blood = life... - circulation, cycles, motion, stream, traffic - aesthetics, lines, geometrical sign vs human curves - reference to the mouse pointer on a computer screen - for the sake of repetition, leitmotiv, accumulation - make people wonder and question, mysterious, strange - make people feel puzzled, upset, sometimes irritated - graphic weapon , violent sign - fate : one way street / one way life / dead end - strong, powerful yet simple graphic element - a way of saying : this is only representation, not reality - did it once and it stuck - reference to Native Americans : bows & arrows - direction of time/ of space, past/future , here/there - rectangle + triangle = arrow - wink at the red dot : sold piece ! - no specific meaning, just looking good ! - personal reason
you can add your own version to the list ! I love reading new interpretations or feelings about my arrows...
