The Conduit by N8grafica The Conduit by N8grafica
The Conduit Oil on Panel. 36 x 48. Symbolizes a philosophy. an attitude or approach, that emphasizes, courage, letting go, receiving well, finding freedom and peace, openness, vulnerability, being honest with yourself. The lion represents courage, a barbaric force that leads you into honesty even if it draws blood (the blood stained muzzle). The rider is you. the posture represents coming out of hiding and becoming a conduit. a vessel that allows something to channel through it. Living in faith that you will get what you need in this life to the point where you can release. The cracking sky represents a doorway of eternal abundance. The flames in the distance represent the comforts of the familiar that you must be willing to leave. It could be old belief systems or a stifling environment that you got comfortable in. As you pursue your destiny, the warm flames will try to call you back. I devote this painting to those that care about being genuine and uncompromising in their passion and convictions. The ones who care about independence. Having a solid impact, leaving a legacy. Shaking off the devices of those that would try to control you.

I'd like to stick my knitting needle into that torso and watch it deflate, I mean c'mon! Beautiful message though.

 The journey of the emasculated man toward his forgotten manhood is one I care deeply about, so the emphasis is very intentional
Thank you for your taking the time to leave a comment and to voice your opinion.

Beautiful composition, form and dynamic perspective. The colors, sweep of the arms and lions gaze all combine to make this a stunning piece! Excellent, excellent work!
