All that We See or Seem is but a Dream Within a Dream – 2015
Oil on canvas – 106 x 136cm
Artists & their work (in an ideal world) can be perceived as the conscience of the world. Using the body as the vehicle for art work is timeless. It appears to be incumbent on artists to continually proffer their work in however hostile an environment they are in. Perhaps artists should consider withholding their favors as a means of preserving their integrity and power
Sadly and characteristically this (anonymous) artiste/beggar has so far received no alms for effort. As a mirror on society this artiste/beggar metaphorically alludes to a generalized paucity in appreciation.
