Cave Paintings

Inspired by Plato’s Cave and the writing of Susan Sontag, I have begun my own series of cave paintings. These images want you to consider the reality of what you are seeing. Is the vision that your eyes are receiving a concrete truth or only a pale, watered-down version of an extraordinary reality? Perhaps our vision is obscured by the chains that bind us?
