“Untitled” - Acrylic painting of a cracked, decomposing marble slab from the garden

I think of this painting as symbolizing decomposition/death and renewal/life – the life cycle. The marble slab is in the process of decay and the grasses pushing up through the cracks, as well as the dung beetle are in the process of generating new life. The texture of the marble as it decomposes from the elements, especially acid rain, is what attracted me to this project and what I tried to capture.
