About the artwork

Reproduction of Original 1974 Painting

I believe it’s best to let people have some room for interpretation of a work, especially ones that have a bowl and spoon as a symbolic quality.

There’s a strong element of Oliver Twist here.

The empty bowl seems to ally itself to hunger and need.

Maybe I’m giving away too much. Initially, it was a visual moment of light and dark that moved me.

These weird ideas come from spending so much time alone in front of the easel.
