From Daggers to Doughnuts

From Daggers to Doughnuts

130cm x 130cm, spray paint and acrylic on canvas.

This painting tip toes into the realm of psychology, the objects are presented on a clean or somewhat sterile surface as if ready to be operated on. From Dagger to Doughnuts can be regarded as representation of Feminine and Masculine traits that are are usually fighting it out in the individual, but in this case they are presented equally. While the doughnut is round and has been nutured, delicately covered in fragile icing and sprinkles, it invites you in with its warmth and softness. The dagger on the other hand is cold, unloved, dangerous and mistreated, yet adorned with a desire for the other. While the dagger is worn out and used it can only get older and more decrepit, the doughnut however is ready to protect and nurture you and keep you safe because it exists in a eternal state of preservation.
