This piece is a combo of 400+ toy animals, soldiers and dinosaurs; inspired by the feeling of not having hope. You don’t know what someone’s going through, even if you’re close. Each light bulb represents a life and are all different from the colours to the combination of toys. The middle light bulb blends in with the dark background to visually represent not having hope, feeling lost. However once exposed to true light and darkness, parts of it glow. This relates back to my roots/routes because of the message it represents. When you struggle throughout your life, it’s a reminder that through those dark times, you can come out stronger than before, so don’t lose hope. Remember, the stars don’t shine without the darkest sky.
Good quality gallery canvas includes hanging hardware attached to the back.
