I AM VICTORY OVER DEATH 2 – COLIN McCAHON, 1970 ART SYNTHETIC POLYMER PAINT ON CANVAS
On February 22nd 2010, I featured this artwork: Colin McCahon, Victory over Death, 1970, synthetic polymer paint on canvas onto the website in California.
I also wrote the words:
“Death = anything, anyone, any system pretending to be a friend – yet that which keeps us from fulfilling our potential and realizing our dream, destiny and life. Death is fear. False Evidence Appearing Real, in the form of a bullying threat standing in the way of a better future.”
I also wrote:
“Because Hollywood is full of mirages in a smoke and mirrors town, I love this painting. McCahon says, I Am Victory over the enemy of my dream.”
That Hollywood night I concluded:
“Love his artistic voice from the black canvas. So inspiring. Too deep and real.”
Thank you Colin McCahon. In looking at those words. It’s probably where a lot of people are at in the world right now. The words are exciting. To confront all of the answers to the questions raised is a good thing to get it done. (Life).
