Suscipio (Up) 16X20 Acrylic on Canvas
Finished this week, a painting of two hands/arms holding on to each other for help. Suscipio is Latin, and means up – take up, lift up, receive.
I wanted to create a piece that shows that the nature of man is good. It is proactive and it is love, it is brotherhood/sisterhood…human. When others are in need, we extend our hand to help. When we our down, someone reaches down to us to lift us up. It’s a two way street.
The piece was originally meant to be a vertical, but when I looked at it horizontally, it felt like the viewer could stand in the position of the bottom hand and felt more relate-able that way.
This piece is available for purchase. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
