Garden of Youth 16″ x 20″ Oil on panel, framed by the artist

Garden of Youth is inspired by the work of Rene Magritte. This optical trick, where the silhouette of a girl in a dress is hidden in the suckling plant, evokes youth and innocence.

Our desire for the new, the virginal, is part of a larger body of work, The Quench Project and the Mire of Desire, exploring how our desires tend to control us, whether they are healthy in nature or more malevolent.
