You're walking along the fences in the neighborhood you grew up in, when you hear low voices muttering. You follow the noise and stumble across something you shouldn't have, but it's too late.
I won't give too much info on the inspiration behind this piece as I would like people to come up with their own stories and interpretations, but the idea for this piece came partly from 1970's horror films and Michael Blumenthal's poem "Suburban".
This is What I Leave You
"This is What I Leave You" acrylic on wood, 2020.
This is a handmade, one-of-a-kind painting of many images, collage-style, depicting the good, bad, and neutral pieces of the current world. The inspiration for the pieced-together style comes from the Japanese practice of kintsugi. The painting features some graphic imagery.
It is acrylic paint on a wood panel. Unframed.
