Threads of Love as Comfort. This is about grasping for comfort, or escapism, a theme I have explored a few times. We can spend time searching, wasting time, checking emails, hoping, for what? Reaching for some sort of comfort. This painting has erotic tones, but clashes this with the snuffed candle of the mountain, indicating deadness, and the pain of the scarred monolithic figure. Like most of my work, the concept was unconscious rather than overtly planned, so even my interpretation of the work is merely an interpretation. A common theme in my work is grasping, searching, reaching; like all artists. We must explore and push to the new. For me success is not rest, not security, it is dynamism.
