A Fathers journey

Dennis O'Mara's avatar Dennis O'Mara

A Fathers Journey This is a series of paintings that briefly show the journey fathers begin when their child is born. Fathers should never forget their importance in the events in their children’s lives. Children begin as the cared for and as the fathers journey comes to a close many see these roles begin to switch. I chose etched steel paintings for this installation because in the beginning our fathers are like the steel that the images are on and over time even steel begins to rust and break down. The paintings are salt water etchings because they are permanently etched into the steel, much like the word father, a title that has meaning and one you can never scrape away.
