Bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This phrase was repeating itself in my mind throughout the creation of this piece. I've always loved the idea of painting flesh and the philosophical connections that arise from that. The study of anatomy, the skeleton and muscles, is also something that carries a lot of spiritual charge for me. Studying the substances from which we are all created and connected by, and then representing those forms with pigments and oils, I think is the most meaningful goal I could pursue.
