Artist's Description

The second painting in the series.

The series was inspired by T.S. Eliot’s poem Hollow Men, especially by the following lines:

“Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow”

I recently found this poem by Mary Inside vs. Outside and it fits the ideas and thoughts I had whilst painting perfectly. Check it out here: click here

There are four images in the series:

The first in the series is Panier-Avec-L’Oiseau.

The third in the series is Métamorphose

The fourth in the series is Fin
