Live Light Toronto
Acrylic on Canvas
This vibrant painting captures in its simple theme what everyone needs to do more often. To live light. When I was making this painting, the original idea was to express how I felt, tied in the monotony of everyday work. By the time this work was finished, the context had become bigger than just myself, ad we entered in COVID 19 lockdown all over the world.
Toronto Skyline in the background at the bottom of the painting shows our connection to the city, the economy and the engine that runs most of our lives in one way or the other. The elephant on the unicycle is anyone like you and I, but has chosen to rise above all the everyday issues and live light.
