The Swing of Things

Inspired by a return to college after a 20-year hiatus, tattoo artist Matthew Amey's "Jump Off" series encapsulates the artist's personal meditations on the transience of youth and the uncertainty of adulthood.

He explores the implications of these reflective thoughts and feelings with a depiction of the nostalgic sentiment of freedom coupled with stark, gestural strokes and symbolic details. In the enthralling design, a girl is suspended mid-swing while a flock of birds circles the tree's branches. The tree represents stability, safety, comfort, excitement, and the all-encompassing love of family, while the birds represent the opportunities and challenges the child will encounter as she reaches life's crossroads.

With its strikingly straightforward duality, the piece juxtaposes a child's carefree nature with an adult's projection of the future, using a personal and universal childhood experience as an opportunity for deep expression. Limited edition of 200 sequentially numbered prints made with oil-based inks on Somerset textured paper. Contemporary black frame. Made in Newark, Delaware and hand signed.

For My Grandchildren

I bought both Free and Elation for my grandchildren. These prints so reminded me of their youth and the hours they spent with me, many of them on tree swings we built together. I hope it will always remind them of the joy and love we shared.

Waited too long to buy "jump off", as it was sold out when I finially decided to order. But I like this one nearly as well. Great inspiration for anyone in the process of undergoing a life change!

Striking in its simplicity

5

I purchased this framed print to hang in the Children's Room in my home; that is, the room where my two small granddaughters regularly play and sleep when they come to visit. I wanted the one in the series where the little girl jumps OFF the swing, but it was sold out :( so I bought this one, where the girl is still swinging. I see it as sort of a poem, and I hope it comes to symbolize the happy, simple times my granddaughters are having at my house, and will, in turn, help to create pleasant childhood memories for them.

Excellent quality. An emotional journey

I love the feeling this print invokes. I plan to will the print to my granddaughter with a letter to tell her how much the time we spent together meant to me. I hope she will find a perfect place for it in her home someday, just as I have in mine.
