LOSING MY GRIP.
8.5" x 11" open edition print
About the Piece:
This is the first piece in my Gesture series, a series of works that use imagery of my own hands. I start with a basic concept, one that by definition is concise and easily understood. However, these concepts often are viewed differently by each of us, as our experiences and point of view greatly affect our interpretation and personal meaning of these ideas. From this simple concept, I use the images of hands to build upon the idea and make it my own.
The title of the piece refers to both the literal translation that the upper hand is losing its grip on what it is holding. But it is also the idea that in life, when we try to control our surroundings, whether it is other people or any aspect of our lives, the more controlling and the more manipulative we become, the more we lose control and are left with only chaos.
The original sold at the Winter 2004 show of Nashville group, Untitled.
