"Glory Grab", 16" x 20", oil on canvas, 2019
"Glory Grab" was created within the "Narrative Rewritten" boxing glove series. The image depicts gloves suspended in the air, wrapped in iredescent, reflective material. The way the gloves are wrapped in the material is a reference to the tradition of giving bouquets after a concert or recital, and how they would commonly be preserved by hanging upside-down. If this painting was on a spectrum between representation and abstraction, the refletive material is described is closer to abstraction, which is commonly connected to spirituality. The decisions of arrangement, color and shapes are also free for interpretation.
