Oil on Canvas

Description

This work, like much of my practice explores the underlying essential nature of our being. Despite conflict, both internally and externally, we all share the same heart. The two sections split horizontally play with the traditional painterly notions of landscape; land and sky. On another level, the earth rich and brown from thousands of years of layered meaning, while hovering above represents the lighter skinned and mixed peoples that live here too, their fabric less substantial. The outline form of the human form unites us, open armed with potential. The subject matter is deeply emotional on a personal level, but at the same time expresses feelings of a universal consequence.
