FLECK FINE ART EXHIBITION
"Self Contained" (in progress) by ARDEA THURSTON-SHAINE
Description: 40x60", oil on canvas, 2020
This painting continues my exploration of the human self and observed nonhuman world as part of one continuous complexly interrelated fabric. Specifically, it struggles with the seeming opposition between self on the perimeter versus in the centre. The world wraps around me, pointing inward towards me. At the same time, I look outward, searching for open spaces. And always, behind, within, creeping around the edge of my sight, I meet myself again.
