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 best way to unlock a secret is to find the key. Here it is dangling in plain sight. The rust tells of undisturbed seasons and ignored opportunities. But the intricate detail calls out for closer inspection, the straight lines voice the simplicity of choice. The withering backdrop in dark red spells urgency, a final nail that might crack the wall that has held on for far too long. Along with the key the wall represents the bleeding heart of dreamers. Cracked, weathered but not broken, it holds faithfully the key of hope. Will you embrace the responsibility of the key?
