Artist's Description

Bound by webs of parental voice, chains of debt, wires of responsibility and ropes of memories. The day grew short for this store clerk as it came time to leave, as it grew near to bedtime, as the leaves swayed in hot winds. There were longings for water, mountain tops, skies. Instead the walk to a car on melting cement led the path to an old, dirty auto and that ignited to move to a metal container facing a screen and faces of unpleasant complaints and inquiries.
The desire to be free and express oneself was inhibited by the need to please, the memory of loss, fear of failure and ridicule.
The decision to have one more cup of coffee at home even if it resulted in being late for work was an act of rebellion. “Irresponsible,” the voice chattered. “Childish.”
One more cup, regardless, and the chance to daydream for a few more minutes.
“Bound” is 24″×36″ acrylics on Tyvek paper. Aug. 2010 by John Fish
