Mixed media, Cradled Wood Board

Working on conquering something
Like a vast expanse.
There is more to come.
He has his eye on it.

This sculptural painting “Determined” depicts a man in contemplation. He is imposed upon a collaged 3D topographical raised relief map of the world turned upside down.  The topography and some details and place names from the map’s surface show through the rich layers of transparent paint. His right eye is located on Mount Everest, representing the enormity of what he has overcome and/or what is still to come. This piece was originally inspired by Job 28 in the Bible and the human search for wisdom.

The painting is continued on the sides of the 3/4 inch cradled wood panel. Topographic features of the artwork add an additional 1/2 inch of depth. It comes ready to hang. It is framed in a maple wood floater frame which has been painted semi-gloss black, with picture wire attached, varnished, signed by the artist on the front and back, and with a certificate of authenticity.
