All that We See or Seem is but a Dream Within a Dream – 2015


Oil on canvas – 106 x 136cm

Artists & their work (in an ideal world) can be perceived as the conscience of the world. Using the body as the vehicle for art work is timeless. It appears to be incumbent on artists to continually proffer their work in however hostile an environment they are in. Perhaps artists should consider withholding their favors as a means of preserving their integrity and power.

This anonymous artiste/beggar has so far received no alms for effort. It [beggars] the question of whether the effort of acting as a mirror on society has been  in vain?
