Artist's description:

"Altruism: Spirituality Below the Surface" is a poignant reminder of the innate selflessness existent in our world society. I created this impasto, pastel painting with a geometric foundation after realizing my distaste for opening news applications on my iPhone. It feels like the media floods us with fear, hate, and distrust, all under the guise of being informative. Is the world really this bad? This painting is very symbolic for me. The gray being the cultural perception we feel after reading the news for even 5 minutes, and the colorful, thick paint below representing the real altruism inherent in both ourselves and society as a whole.

As I meditate each morning, I feel that altruism bubbling to the surface - a feeling I hope is reality coming to fruition, albeit slowly, in the rest of the world. This piece is a reminder to focus on the good, for the more we pay attention to it, the more expansive it becomes.

This piece is a one-of-a-kind artwork created by me, Kelly McAtee, in 2017. The artwork arrives with a certificate of authenticity.

This piece is not painted on the sides and is ideally suited for a floating frame.
