Paintings on a "battered but enduring" theme
Above: Painting by David Nicholls "Moon Girl, Earth Sail, Sun Ocean" mainly depicts someone battered by the ravages of time, & maybe bad luck & decisions still managing to take control of their situation when feeling sorry for oneself or giving up would be easier.
Below: Pumice-head with Skyscraper cocoon. Acrylic paint on canvas, pumice from a New Zealand Volcano (head) and Fimo (hat).
Below: Next to the six girls of the Caryatid Porch (dated around 400 BC) in Athens, also battered by the ravages of time but still flourishing in their own way.
