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: broken 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 unneeded but I postpone the moment until I walk away unheeded unbound.
