Ignorance Is Bliss
A Murder She Saw
In October I created 3 new paintings entitled the Cryptic tree. A single tree loaded with a frenzied array of wildlife. It is currently on show in the Leith Area.
52 Coburg Street to be exact.
The painting "Ignorance is Bliss" was inspired by a strained affair I had between a an older woman and a young lady of great beauty. Ignorance of either situation is well and truly... bliss.
"A Murder She Saw" is a murder of ravens and crows witnessing the death of a heartbroken family member. It is not that bird though that was murdered. That is the one at the base of the tree. This painting is inspired by a time I spent bitter at the amount of loving couples surrounding me. While I himself was alone and frustrated.
"Rich Pickings" reflects an unspoken desire to have children of my own. Due to an infection of mumps in my early twenties. I am now probably sterile. The brooding fox represents myself. I sit without motivation while a group of woodpeckers steal my eggs and crack them open.
