Emergence

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Save

I look closely at the force of nature that emerges through our pavement, concrete, asphalt and other ways we have of trying to subjugate life. I find it a wonder that small seeds have the strength and force of will to make it through heavy and solid objects! The more I look, the more beautiful these images are to me- the details, the detritus and the way the sun hits the pavement. I find them both beautiful testaments of life- as well as nearly abstract paintings that I enjoy composing. I also consider them a metaphor of man's own tenacity of life and will.
