These Walls

Matt Bottos

Victoria, Australia

Artist's Description

The tallest walls cast the longest & deepest shadows but the darkest of shadows are spawn from the brightest of pure light.
Some walls we create ourselves and some are created by situations beyond our control. Regardless of how they are created, we are left with a choice on how we deal with them.
Due to the overwhelming oppressive shadow that a wall can cast, it may seem easier to succumb to the darkness and be imprisoned within the shadows; to fade away un-noticed, isolated and alone.
Emancipation is created in just one simple step out into the light. To summon the will to take that one small step can at times seems as though it’s a quest to traverse a mountain range. Sometimes a hand from another is required to get on ones feet but the first step must come from the will of the individual.
Only once it has been taken can it be seen for all it is… a simple step.
This image was inspired by the song These Walls by Dream Theater. If you dig this image and have some spare time, check it out. I find it inspires in taking that first step.
