In Need of a Leg Up

Oil on canvas 91 x 91cm 2024 Available

A figure stretches and the exaggerated lines of the form suggest a deep longing or desire for something beyond the canvas. He rests one foot on a ladder, but it's as high as he can go without help or a leg up. The pale yellow landscape pulsates with movement that is echoed in the railway lines or fallen ladder that links the edge of the canvas with the horizon. A creature prances, like a bee hovering near a flower. The yellow flower bursts with pollen and rebirth. We can all use a step up to support us in reaching towards what truly brings us a sense of belonging.
