This Place Has No Meaning Without You, 2001
Oil on canvas
72 x 48 in.
It has statistically been proven that happiness is most often found when the quality of pleasure is accompanied by another individual, which also creates a profound memory.
The canvas is emblematic of the wheel of life. Under a macro lens, behaviors are patterns that repeat ad nauseum. Likewise, the strokes zig and zag, repeatedly.
The pierce points or tears are moments when the trajectory of moves to another level. Up or down. Self-imposed or otherwise.
Despite this, the accompaniment of another, helps make it worth while. Hence the title.
A photo session with a body swimming. Arising from the depths and birthing a life.
