Artist's description:

The inspiration for this series of conceptual paintings comes both from the philosophy of Heidegger and the life giving and life sustaining benefits of modern medicine. Every drop of paint used for the painting has passed through a syringe - a life keeper/giver - therefore “Life” in the title (in this case insulin). Each application of paint takes approximately the same time as preparing and administrating an injection. “Being and Time” is the title of a major work by Heidegger arguing that in “being” and “becoming” all we really have / own is “Time” – i.e. the time we take up in living. Sartre’s work “Being and Nothingness” continued from there. The painting is very colourful and decorative - a celebration of life. It is intended to be exciting close up as well as at a distance with new colours and patterns to be seen at every viewing. The edges show the development of the painting which I see as an added interest. You can choose to hang it vertically or horizontally.

Ready to hang. No frame needed.
