“Ode to Perseverance” (Go to Gallery/New Works to view it.)
In “Ode to Perseverance” I have explored ideas of justice through an allegorical ensemble of iconographic characters and objects representing various virtues and vices.
Justice begins with each individual. Individuals form a society and justice is a product of the virtues and values in any given society.
Each individual attempts to balance virtues and vices within themselves; this is the struggle that “Ode to Perseverance” attempts to express.
