"An Arduous Study on Happiness" is interested in exploring the emotional response of moving from one culture to another and continues to pursue my fascination with the relationship between symbols (for example language and mythological symbolism) and the possibility of meaning that they contain. How one series of lines can be immediately recognized as holding meaning to someone while to another they are (at that moment) meaningless. This recognition of the power of symbols shapes our perceptions of the world and consequently directly affect how (and why) we act. Moreover, these systems of symbols which we have created and use to communicate have a fragile and ephemeral nature. Words lose their 'original' meaning and change. Languages are lost, discovered and created. Symbols which were once taboo and progressive become pedestrian and mundane. These tools (symbols) which we use are pathways to understanding our past, present and where we want to be as individuals and as societies in the future. This transience is acknowledged through my working process. I am more interested in the actual process as opposed to the completion...which borrows from ideas held within Wabi-sabi (侘寂) I work and re-work my paintings adding, removing layers until a form appears which I then develop upon. This piece is produced on high quality (wide edge) canvas. ***This piece is set to be shipped unstretched (rolled in a PVC tube) as it is cheaper for the collector. However, If you would like for it to be shipped stretched on a wide frame (as seen in the images) please let me know (this will increase the shipping cost)
