“i Once was” by Zom Osborne
Acrylic and pen on wood
30cm x 25cm (approximately 12″ x 10″)
In the same way as I receive inspiration for an artwork, sometimes I receive words as well. The italics are the voice of the painting, not mine.
i Once was who covered the Earth and kissed Her every surface. And now Her skin is scarred and covered with bitumen and concrete. We reach Her and interweave our roots deep deep and they touch and entwine until there is no division between us, one is the other.
And now we mourn.
