Climbing

This abstract piece was a very personal one. It reflects my career and where I was heading. I felt that I needed to do this piece. I felt I was climbing a ladder to nowhere, learning things that didn’t have any end goal or was any use to anyone. It makes me reflect my goals in life and a reason I started painting. Some things in life are explained, perhaps most things, I am always looking for answers but perhaps drawing and painting doesn’t need explanation. It is quite exhilarating doing something that doesn’t need an explanation or reason, not being (or having) to explain the reason for its being. I finished this piece on the 5th October 2011.

I used an airbrush and watered acrylics paints for the colours, but simply penned in the ladder and character (me).
