fear of success by ToastedGhost

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Inspired by Martin Puryear’s “Ladder for Booker T. Washington”

How far do you climb?
At what cost?
Do you fear the assent?
or descent?
Do you climb at all?
What prevents you from climbing?
or climbing further?

Many will notice that the falling figure is not me
I wanted the work to remain generic
however it is my mouth


failure, fear, ladder, success, sureal, surreal, toastedghost

    how weird, I just wrote a muse about Hope and before I abreviated it I spoke of failing and falling…
    Snap. Sure wish I could create images as well as you to express the feeling. :-)
