Final Episode: The Big Show (Timothy Forry)

From the artist: "The theme I chose for my final collection is Loss. At first, I chose this theme because one of my biggest fears is losing people that are close to me. So my first few pieces deal directly with that particular aspect of loss. However, I started thinking about all of the ways we "lose" things, ie: weight, keys, our clothes, virginity, etc... so I plan on expanding and exploring some of those aspects of Loss as well. To unify the collection, I plan on sticking to monochromatic or very limited color for each piece.

Then I had a radical departure from where I started, but that's all part of the process.  As I was working on what would become "What Have We Done", which started out as a still life, I had a divinity moment and knew where I wanted to take my theme of loss and how I wanted to express it.  I began to focus my thoughts on loss of resources and then let my subconscious take over.  I was only able to complete the painting and most of the drawing before and I have started another painting.  I plan to keep going with this theme for as long as I can ride it."
