Artwork Description

This piece was borne out of several things.
A season of waiting for the last several years of my life. Waiting on certain events and happenings to take place, that has required drawing down to the very depths of my patience, and testing of my strength of character, in a way I've not had before. There were some points in this season that it was only having a firm faith in God that kept me going, and kept me alive.
I found that in this sort of season, time takes on a surreal nature, and often the days seem completely repetitive, to the point of unreality, and utter nonsense. I depicted this with the unreal nature of the apples, they're almost plastic in quality, so red they're not real.
The apples are both grounded and suspended at the same time, either a combination of dreaming/hoping (suspension) and being stuck in reality of waiting (the grounded ones), or conversely the grounded ones are my faith, and the people who kept me grounded for sanity and love, and the suspended apples
