Piece description from the artist
Swimming against changing tides. Trying to work against the water being pulled and pushed from a distant moon. The idea for this painting came from watching people swim at night combined with the idea of free will vs determination.
The artwork of Skip Myers explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. One art critic described him as an oneironaut, or one who explores alternative realities. These works are strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
