REACHING for a DISTANT SHORE

REACHING for a DISTANT SHORE
Linda Kennedy

(see more by this artist)

acrylic on linen canvas, original, one-of-a kind, mounted on stretcher with edges painted and staples carefully hidden behind such that artwork is ready to hang

This painting was initially entitled,"Through the Valley of Tears"
because it was meant as a tribute to all the AIDS and cancer sufferers; hence the bald heads, the outstretched arms, the ladder to heaven and the angel in the distance guiding them through the valley of tears.

One soul, with his hand firmly grasping the ladder, reaches down to give his brother a helping hand. Anyone who has witnessed this final stage of a dying friend or family member knows how much their suffering increased their humanity. We witness how much more caring, sensitive and compassionate they become. It is as if their suffering polished off their hard edges. The awe inspiring lessons the dying teach us humble us all. It is their parting gift.

This painting provokes strong reactions. It is one of the few pieces of my work which has never been exhibited in a public art gallery. The curators and jurors unanimously hated it.
