Enticing the Brothers of Thunder

Piece description from the artist

This piece was created in the late half of spring in 2010 during a phase of great and personal transition. On the verge of moving out of my small apartment and out of a city I had high hopes for, I was stuck between two worlds for the summer – doing what I love to do with my work and perhaps sticking with safer, more stable options to retain a kind of security moving forward into a future I may or may not be completely happy with.

The work was nonobjective, to start, where color was laid on thick in blankets and form was shaped and then placed with a specific kind of personal meaning. It was an indirect exploration through symbols in my work I had become accustomed to as items displaying personal growth and reflection – mysterious eyes; bright, abrasive, yet balanced colors; bodiless limbs performing nondescript tasks. Ultimately, I was left with a piece that stood on its own and allowed me to reflect upon, through mysterious imagery, the kinds of inner turmoil I was used to dealing with in my tumultuous year.
