Years of working in corporate America can make you feel like you’re little more than a machine. But underneath that feeling and the cold impersonal world of “doing your job right,” is a humanity that keeps things moving.
My painting tries to capture that idea by laying metal cog parts and brown splotches on top of a colorful wheel that I view as the soul. Even though the splotches and metal pieces are there, they cannot overtake or erase the soul underneath.
The keys point away from the machine in various directions to represent how freedom comes not from the fog and oppressive gears trying to entrap the human spirit. Rather freedom comes from outside of the machine. The painting encourages the viewer to see beyond the trap of the mechanism and witness the beauty of the world when one escapes the machine and becomes more.
