Continuing my posts about the ‘Puppet’ series, here’s what I consider to be the defining image of the series, “The Yearning”.
One of my intents as I developed this series, was to use the puppet to symbolize the human condition. In part 2 of the series, The Tempting’, I attempted to show basic human curiosity. With ‘The Yearning’, I tried to symbolize the search for love and acceptance.
This set me off on a variation of the seven deadly sins treatments; using the puppet character to portray vanity and greed, and . . . well I didn’t do a complete list of seven. I’ll show you these, plus some other paintings in future posts.
