New Piece Preview


This is a closeup preview of the newest piece in my series "Chessboards". I am exploring the modern form of the classical topic "the muses". I find it interesting that what used to inspire most artists in our past has become obsolete as we enter an ever increasing digital age where most anyone can be deemed "artistically inclined" which I find depressing. I believe that anyone can make art yes, because that is the beauty of art itself, but too many people draw a picture of my little pony and expect to be given some sort of praise for innovation. Not enough modern artists challenge the mold, at least in my personal experience and this is a social commentary on that concept.
