THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Mud with Buffalo painting is a striking piece that speaks of a feeling of being stifled or restrained. In the Native American tribe of Lakota, buffalo have long stood as a symbol of manifestation and abundance. In this painting, dark, murky colours of brown and red are used to compose the mud which the buffalo is lying in. Being quite literally stuck in the mud, this painting could represent the artist's emotions when it comes to his ability to manifest change or when it comes to the lack of fulfillment or the ownership of what he needs to survive.
