The CHILDREN Collection
About The Collection:
The concept of ‘Children’ is a deep one, the idea that we as humanity are still children in the eyes of the cosmos. We are the products of the illusions we create: Children of God. Children of Fate. Of Compassion…. etc. The results of this visual analyzation are 6 statement paintings on canvas. The size of the work I feel makes the message so much stronger. Each piece focusing on expression, cubist ideals and a surreal feel will make these works become center stage in any home display.
Also available are limited edition gicleé, hand embellished reproduction prints on canvas. Smaller in size keeping a collector with not much room in mind, and unique all their own with gold leaf embellishments. The reproductions made will be limited to only one, as after hand touching with paint and gold leaf they become unique all their own.
Continuing the ‘Children’ tale are edition Lino-Prints. Two designs hand carved and printed here in the studio. The plate was destroyed after printing, making these limited to only 5 of each design.
Bringing the opus to a close are the sculptures to “Children”. Two figurative works in plaster. The most detailed and thought filled works I have completed in the medium. The Sculptures feature bold colors that will be sure to enhance any home or display.
About This Piece:
"Children of Violence", inside of all of us is good and evil. Peace and Rage. Sometimes, I am sure most of us have felt, that the violent side of us can be all too easily allowed to consume. Humanity and the world it has shaped is most certainly a product of violence. In this work, we see the character, with a child like expression of both happiness and simpleness clutching onto an instrument of death. Perhaps in the piece, the character can be seen as naively holding hte weapon and not knowing how to use the device or it can also be seen as this device is this characters most prized possession.
The vibrant reds contrast beautifully with the black and white rendering of the character. This piece is most certainly a stand out piece anywhere it is displayed and guaranteed to draw conversation for years to come.
