Apprehension 2
 
Watercolors, ink, and coffee on canvas approx. 11" X 14" A meditation on the nature of apprehension and the uncertainty of life. I wanted to explore the mental space of fear. Not the dread or terror of the fear we know but the creeping and impressive force that is fear of the mundane. As an artist and a philosopher this feeling has been the root of my darkest moments. To fear failure is to fear the act of creation itself but what is it to fear banality? To fear never being famous or rich, but instead to always be a burden to those you love because you have not found enough success. That hollow fear is what gnaws at my soul and this is how my hands interpret that feeling.
