Oil on Canvas, 2019
This painting, “Breaking,” invites the viewer to experience the feelings when trying to break free of something that we had voluntarily surrendered to either intentionally or unconsciously. It is a prison with no physicality. It is in the wide open sky (a.k.a. “World Wide Web”) of information that allows us to shop with a click and attain more and more stuff and services easily on our many devices. Our likes and dislikes, and our entire identity are undoubtedly also coded in this wide open sky. Many of us know and feel this same freedom and access to information is the modern prison of the masses. What is it bringing out in us individually and as a humanity? How long can we submerge in the habit and lifestyle of gluttony - consuming an over abundance of food, clothes, things, and porn? We know we are facing mass extinction, and climate change is an existential threat. Yet, our habits are not in sync with reality. Daily, we ignore that inner voice telling us something is very wrong with the way we carry on. This painting shows what courage can look like, despite the fear of the unknown is ever present. But that’s what’s so freeing - breaking from the norm and returning to nature and our earth. The enormity of our prison today ultimately requires individual courage and commitment.
