Description

An emotive work depicting a young man who's gaze tells a story. This painting has spanned many years of work for the artist, recording and documenting an evolving emotional journey for both the artist and the subject.
This work represents a time full of challenges in a changing environment and a new chapter in a personal journey;
The artists aim was to ensure that this work portrays this emotional journey of deep involvement in the outcome, immersed in the personal perspective of the surrounding environment with it’s many challenges at that time, resolute in the goals to resolve the battles and difficulties arising everyday; this is manifested in the constant process of building up and breaking down layer upon layer in order to create a rich depth and texture to this work. The luminous quality of this work has culminated in a powerful composition which it's hoped engages the viewer and resonates with them on various levels giving rise to hope and determination in their own journey, as motivated in the subjects eyes.

This painting is oil on stretched canvas, with painted edges, and is ready to hang.
Framing is optional.
