The visually monochromatic palette of this painting contributes to its raw emotion while evoking a feeling of oneness. The contrasting tones and looming shadow threaten to challenge this tranquil scene, introducing a world of duality and a sense that things may not be as simple as they seem in the life of this young musician.
My relationship to this painting stems from the state of flux that often accompanies the pursuit of a dream where moments of certainty and clarity compete with anxiety and self-doubt. In studying this painting after its completion, I felt the loneliness of my own ambitions living outside the conventional fray but I also felt my steadfast determination. I thought of the other creative people that I know and have known, particularly those in my family. Their collective experiences and lost dreams opened up to me like the pages of a novel and I felt a part of something much greater than my own ideas.
