A Forest – Blog by Aly

A Forest, oil on canvas, 39″ x 39″. In the collection of Viv Aves.


Inspired by The Cure’s song of the same name and an homage to Gustav Klimt A Forest is a large piece I created expressing the feelings of being lost and how a manic mind feels it is running and running and running and running…. and running and running and running….

Suddenly I stop – But I know it’s too late
I’m lost in a forest
All alone
The girl was never there
It’s always the same
I’m running towards nothing
(Again and again and again and again) And Again.
