Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This work was inspired by a performance group called Gecko. Their work is called "the time of your life," a mix of movement, dance and sporadic spoken text that surrealistically narrates the progression of the 'everyman' lifetime.

I was drawn to the darkly humorous image of an automaton child, which I felt has several interesting interpretations.

The centra figure was the starting point, and as the painting progressed the surroundings and additional characters changed, with their intentions staying relatively similar.
