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? A deadbolt that is as stoic as the traditional past signifies it can either arrest your thoughts or show you that nothing is permanent. What once was unsurmountable is today an obsolete antique. Do you admire its irrelevant dedication or do you look for possibilities? Is it there to guard a hidden story or is it a signpost to freedom? Do you wonder who entrusted their secrets to it and what stories might lurk under its protection? Or do you see the beauty in the peeling of the paint that once was a handsome door? Are you tempted to discover the hidden memories that those walls hold or would you rather let time fold it into oblivion? Is it a silent telling of what once was but is no more or is it a portal to a story waiting to be heard?
