Climbing the Cathedral

Oil on canvas

  • Honorable Mention / Imaginative Realism

This painting was my main piece for the Laguna College of Art and Design 2016 BFA graduate show. The subjects are close friends of mine and competitive peers from the school. The painting metaphorically chronicles our maturation from childhood to adulthood, as well as the struggle to mature as artists.
