The Horse

2012, oil on canvas, 137 x 87 cm

The painted works in this exhibition illustrate a protagonist's journey. The works refer to myths and storytelling to portray the psychological struggle of the human condition. I presented these painted works as the start of a discussion and I encourage personal interpretation. The meaning is determined by the individual and thier own history of faith, storytelling, social norms, prejudice, scientific observation, and environmental connection.

notes from the catalogue:

I carry it
the beasts burden is my own
in slumber
it nuzzles
warm and comforting.
When I travel
the burden is heavy
what I carry
defines my strength
one day I will bury it in the ground
but I postpone the moment
until I walk away
