It’s not all black and white III

Dimensions 70 × 60 cm

Inspired by Gerhard Richter. The first impression of this work is definitively black and white. However, upon closer inspection loads of different colors are seen. Some of these secondary colors are bold while others are more subdued. During the production of this piece, I was thinking how our minds typically interpret life circumstances, relationships, or predicaments as either “black or white”. In reality, with a little more patience, examination or thoughtfulness, we eventually see the other “colors” which offer us an alternate resolution or more clear interpretation. For richer living we ought to strive within ourselves and encourage others to discover the alternate “colours” of daily circumstances as well as people we encounter. These secondary “colours” are usually what reveal truth. After all, it’s not all black and white.
