Summer & Winter

Summer & Winter

Original Oil on Canvas
Limited Editions:
Fine Art Edition on Canvas23.75" x 18"

This painting is a play on coupling archetypes such as Black & White, Good & Evil, Yin & Yang, Masculine & Feminine, Sun & Shade, and Right & Wrong. An artist can only define light by the use of shadow. In a film, you only know who is the bad guy by having a good guy. Here you see the cold, masculine winter is forever connected to the warm feminine summer by chain and ribbon. As we humans cannot separate the brightness of our souls from the shadows of our lower nature, so summer and winter are forever connected.
