THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Rich in symbolism, the Still Life with Cage painting takes its cues from the inspired styles of post-impressionism to bring you a colorful piece that speaks volumes about captivity and the self. The birdcage in this painting symbolizes a desire to break free from one's confines, whether it is from their life in the city, from a relationship or from a job. The birdcage offers a way to escape as one must simply find the will to open the door. Yet the enclosed bottles and pitchers placed in front of the birdcage as if taunting it say otherwise.
