Art: work in progress

BACK TO PAINTING AND DRAWING

Gorm #02 ~ “God created man in his own imagination.” Gorm (a narrative poem) by Rod McRiven

They have mastered us. Stripped away freedoms, tagged and categorised us, trained us to accept their constructed absurdities which have so easily become our normalities

Gorm is what we have become – a forlorn unit of biology – even amongst the glitz and glitter, no matter how glamorously we are embellished, we remain faceless, hollow, bleached of humanity.

Painting: 900 x 1020 | acrylic, oil, ink, graphite and 24ct gold | framed board

Gorm, when completed, will form a part of a series of exhibitions in public spaces throughout the South West of England beginning in September 2019.
