Iím of the belief that there is no reason an artist shouldnít tell what motivates them to create a piece. I think it helps the artist get closer to their audience. There are times where some ambiguity or even silence is necessary. A piece may have the potential to touch or resonate within somebody in different ways. It may have a totally different meaning for somebody and as the creator of the piece I wouldnít want to detract from that by clouding it with my own personal interpretation.
In my opinion Iíve created such a painting. I canít relate what it speaks to me because of the deepness. It originally sparked in my head thinking about what the families of terminal cancer patients must have to deal with at the very end. Which led to dealing with the after wards. This then led to introspection and to this that and the other thing when dealing with harsh realities of life. Essentially sometimes you have to let go.
