Unfinished Business, egg tempera and oil on panel, 296cm x 150cm

 

These three panels are just one view of the many paths we follow through life. 

People ask me what it all means. The simple answer is this: If you say what you see, the meanings reveal themselves. 

For example, the black-and-white chequered floor is like a chess board where we make our moves. So it is an allegorical painting, and the people in it represent bigger ideas. For instance, we have a dilemma: how do we survive the career ladder up the scrap heap of our creation while not doing more damage to our environment —  shown here as Flora — the world of plants — and Fauna, animals. 

The panels are entitled, from left to right, Faith, Love and Hope, three crucial virtues that will be there in the end. In the foreground of the painting there are many other virtues that will also help our suffering world.

 

To help you “read” the painting here are a few more examples of saying what you see.

Faith walks confidently on the water towards Flora and Fauna. Renewal throws red paint over the floor (as the blood of Christ is poured over the world). A clown puts on a brave face. Prudence finds that she can pogo as fast as the rat race behind her, but in a more fun way.

 

Love comes to help Flora and Fauna. Her dress has all the colours of the rainbow, and the red thread from Patience’s cloth weaves in and out of her. Near Flora’s head poppies grow in the disturbed earth. There is a hole in Fauna’s endangered species dress. 

Behind her Fortitude carries things that, though perhaps small or insignificant, can make a world of difference when they fall into place: a smile, an ear, a love that has survived many years, time to read, green transport, finding your own golden egg or just a silver lining around a cloud. The fish is back in the river of hope, which runs through the world. Self-righteousness, in his own bubble, won’t get his feet wet and tramples over the river on his own bridge. 

 

Hope, sitting on a wall of recycled metal, waters the olive tree. Water droplets refresh the burning skies. A woman with a chip on her shoulder wades knee deep through the river.

Patience knits her metal threads into a vast cloth, and her friend Humility waits with a knitting needle to pop Self-Righteousness’s bubble.

Time stops the hands of a clock to smell a sprig of thyme. 

Laziness lies in the metal waste, watching soaps on a broken television.

This painting is about our walk through life. I would like it to take a step towards helping two groups of people who have dedicated their lives to helping the downtrodden in this community with their practical help, love and hope: Off the Fence, and St Andrew's (old) Church. If you buy this triptych you will not only get an unusual painting but you will help to save many lives.
