"The Beliefs That Cloud Your Vision" - oil on cradled wood panel, 20 x 20 x 1.5. Ready to hang. Available here and at Artfinder.
Come new to this day. Remove the rigid overcoat of experience, the nothing of knowing, the beliefs that could your vision.
Leave behind the stories of your life. Spit out the sour taste of unmet expectation. Let the stale scent of what-ifs waft back into the swamp of your useless fears.
from 'Prescription for the Disillusioned" by Rebecca del Rio
Here is the thing about rabbit holes - the deeper you go, the more you discover. And sometimes what you find is not what you'd hoped for, not what you imagined, not what you wanted. But there it is. And once you've seen it, you cannot unsee it.
Alice in Wonderland is an allegory for many things. The more time I spend there, the more it becomes, well, a bit personal. How cheeky! But this is what happens when an artist crawls into a theme and shines a light on every little thing. Somehow, magically, life itself becomes illuminated.
I'm curious...and curiouser. What do you see in this piece, dear reader?
