Divine Perspective

Divine Perspective
Photo Description:
With symbols associated to two historical periods, the deep nostalgia in this painting reminds the viewer of their subjective view of the present. The pure, human figures of the divine contemplate the polluted, inhuman, dark cityscape below. The figures are appropriated from a deity to Morpheus and Iris, a traditional allegory. Evocative of the struggle between past and present, this painting evaluates at what point the past is lost from present day, and the effects of losing that connection.
