Wild Beasts Will Be Wild Beasts (2011)

oil painting by Chris Lockhart

In Painting III, we were tasked with creating a painting inspired by the Greek myth of Icarus. In addition to the fall of Icarus as a consequence of his pride and arrogance, I also wanted to approach the idea that Icarus was really very small in greater scheme of things. Not only was he small, but so was his plight.
