On the Edge
Standing on the edge signifies a paradigm shift. A rupture from the old and the beginning of something new. Taking the leap and diving into the deep end. We see a serene expression on the face of the character in the painting, leaving the thunderclouds behind. Acceptance of change. With feet firmly on the edge, preparing for the next step. Only by taking the risk can you break away from what came before. The vast emptiness around the character and the displaced environment imply that this is a figurative leap, not a literal one. Tumbling downward through one’s own habits and patterns to land as if reborn.
