"The Neighbourhood Within: Holes In The Sole" captures the essence of a challenging neighbourhood, where pain and resilience intertwine, unveiling a strength that emerges from within.

See full description & specifications

 In this painting, I wade into the complex and paradoxical neighbourhood of my first marriage—a period that encompassed both profound pain and some of the most transformative moments of my life. Through a portrayal of a woman kneeling, viewed from behind with worn-out shoes, I aim to capture the essence of this tumultuous journey.

The subject of the painting represents the raw vulnerability and desperation that permeated this neighbourhood of my life. Positioned in a posture not of prayer but of begging, she symbolizes the struggles and hardships endured within the confines of an abusive relationship. The worn-out shoes, with holes as a testament to their disrepair, become a poignant metaphor for the limitations and constraints imposed upon me during that time.

Despite the hardships, it is important to acknowledge that this neighbourhood also held moments of hardiness. It is through these trials that I gained the wisdom and fortitude necessary to navigate the challenges that lay ahead. In the midst of darkness, glimpses of light emerged, allowing me to uncover a wisdom I didn’t know I possessed.

Through this painting, I invite viewers to contemplate the complexities of personal relationships and the neighbourhoods they create. It serves as a reminder that even amidst pain, there can be moments of growth and self-discovery. It is a testament to the indomitable human spirit and the capacity to rise above adversity.

"The Neighbourhood Within: Holes In The Sole" encapsulates the dichotomy of a marriage that brought both suffering and profound personal transformation. It honours the strength it took to navigate such a challenging neighbourhood and acknowledges the wisdom that emerged from within.
