"Holding On" 2014
Nothing lasts forever , the only constant thing is change. Change comes and change shakes up the path we found comfort on. Painting, creating, reflecting, just to capture a moment. What are we holding on to though? What’s keeping that perception that we are holding on too? I moved to Chicago, about 2 years ago, I moved from south side Lawndale, to Logan Square , where I am currently. The painting reflects the energy / setting I live. The hand is a representation of what we put our hands to, where we find our grind. Sometimes we work, we strive for something more, upwards, forward progression. We push on, and on, then comes a moment were you wander , what am I holding on to to keep pushing, what is our foundation, what’s the roots that’s holding it together for growth. Whatever it may be, this was just a thought. A thought I painted to share with you. Thank you for reading/ looking.
