This is a series of paintings that sets about to capture the mystery and ambiguity that is life. The poetry of life is captured in the colorful depictions of the lock, key, and keyhole. At first glance they seem to capture the blatant; a door sealed, a key dangling provocatively, and a keyhole tempting possibilities. On closer inspection, the stress on the peeling paint, the rust on the key, and the hidden view of the keyhole all insinuate a hidden and forgotten era. How many seasons has that door witnessed? What does it guard so dutifully? In a world inundated with technology, what does a traditional lock imply? The interpretation of the paintings is exclusively upon the eye of the beholder. Each will see a reflection of the state they are currently in. A doorway to possibilities or a life sealed away? The promise of a journey, old and long forgotten. A withering entrance that likens to the river of life. A few nails to hold the wandering, to delay the weakening. A joyful representation of hidden mysteries. An invitation to the unknown but it leaves you to discover the key. A journey that demands another, an endless loop. A harsh reminding that life is a never-ending stream of twists and turns. The dark keyhole offers no guarantees just hope and the thrill of discovery. It transports the observer into a portal of promises, a hidden narrative that is entirely up to one’s imagination. Is it a doorway? A treasure box? A sealed room? A locked-away attic? Explorations for the inquiring mind and a painted canvas to ponder over.
