This piece of work titled “Poseidon” was juried into Artel Galley’s show “A View From Above”, January 13 to February 20, 2015.
This photo was taken while I was visiting my sister, Liz, in Savannah, Ga. We went to SCAD Museum of Art and in one of the rooms was a triptych. This is just a very small piece of it. The triptych reminded me of a giant aquarium that had so many things to look at you could never get enough of finding new pieces to look at each day.
The reason I chose to enter this piece is two-fold. I look at this piece and see all the sin that we have in life building up as it goes up the arm and then we dye and are reborn (baptism) all that sin is spit out (forgotten) and we begin a new life.
But since I want everyone to look at this piece and draw their own conclusions I just named it Poseidon from Greek mythology, “God of the Sea”.
One God is a myth and the other is truth.
