I am interested in exploring the benefits of understanding life’s contextual roots. Remembering the roots of something brings clarity to the present and answers to convoluted events and thinking. I chose the rhino as a symbol of the fractured human tolerance of today. When provoked, a rhino is an aggressive animal, but more often than not, it is a docile and steady creature. Humans, when provoked, can become aggressive, driven to conflict and war, but a basic need still stands just the same across the world—to be understood. This painting is a reflection of that need.
