Local image #28, or ’A naked intent towards God’
Acrylic on board, 40x40cm
I enjoy imagining the petals emancipating themselves from the pixellated grid of the ’screen’. The fecund vegetation is reaching out, pressing in, striving, searching and longing for something. The painting also strikes me in some ways like a sweet fizzy cooldrink, which creates a tension with the sincerity of the intent.
