Gerry Baptist - The Infinite Possibilities of Life and Death
As if life isn’t fragile enough, it seems that we are a species intent on destroying the environment we live in.
In response to that thought, I began painting abstracts last year which expressed my feeling of a world under stress and obliteration, which I’ve titled: ‘The Infinite Possibilities of Life and Death’.
It was not surprising to see the colours sing when I smothered large sections of the paintings with black- but it was surprising to get a feeling of rebirth in the work, a spirit of hope for the future.
Just maybe after this pandemic is over there will be a change from what we were in the past and we’ll get off the Merry-go-Round of life which has taken us to the brink.
