Photo Description:
This piece is part of an ongoing series which is composed of a series of large paintings, based on a childhood drawing. The drawing was of a mechanical bat, with drills at the end of some of its limbs. Over the past few years, I have visited and revisited this original drawing and recreated it in various styles and sizes. This series deals with the cyclical nature of our lives and what it means to progress. It challenges our ability to advance while stuck in a seemingly eternal rut. While searching for a final resting point to which a person may progress, it reminds the viewer not to forget the positive attributes they once had, or where they came from.
