Jumper, 2016, oil on canvas, 12 x 12 inches / 30.5 x 30.5 cm
The Olympic Games in the old days. The jumper is mid-air, in motion making his way over the bar. Will he jump high enough? Standing in focus behind the jumper is the judge. Then and now, we wish for greatness. Sometimes we go for it. Sometimes we focus on the judge.
