|When art is over. 24"×30" (61.0×76.2 cm). Oil on canvas. June 2012|
I have just completed the first stage of a major website overhaul, and put this work there as its "featured" image. It began in 2009, as a plain impressionist-like floral, and over years gradually turned into something much more complex conceptually and meaningful (for me, at least). As more and more stylistic layers were partly covering one another on this canvas, I was gradually stripping away the artificial in my work and approaching the real: that real stage, where one doesn't act artfully, but is prepared to die in earnest.
