THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This figurative piece is an intriguing depiction of the tempestuous relationship between man and nature. The chaos of the image, with overlapping elements and the artist’s choice of watery blues and a deep earthy red bleeding from a grey background, remind us of the damage that man has done to nature but also that which nature can easily bestow upon man’s world. Animal-like and fish-like creatures dominate the lower part of the composition, as if being pushed down by the human figure. The human figure seems to be whispering something to its animal counterparts as the relationship, tempestuous and unresolved, evolves.
