The Inter-Connected Web of Existence: a painting with a message for these times, step-by-step
One year ago, on November 13, 2015, a series of terrorist attacks took the lives of 130 people and injured hudreds more in Paris, France. The attackers targeted six locations across the city between 9:20pm and 12:20am and during those moments, this painting was already underway in my studio in Pasadena, Ca. I had set out with the intention to relect upon the power of our connection, not only as humans, but as beings from the Sun that provided us with life, the flora and fauna, which sustains us, to the hands of our neighbors. It seemed only fitting that I label this connection from Sun to Plant to Hand, in French:
Soleil • Plante • Le Main
In light of the recent presidential elections here in the United States, I wanted to take a moment to honor the fact that we are not so different, we do not have to be so divided, we are ONE and it is a privledge to exist in this time and this space with you, Main das Le Main.
This painting, is currently hanging in my home studio, but if you have connected in some way to its story and are interested in its message, it can be found for sale in my shop here.
