This is a vibrant yet fractured abstract painting. It is a reflection of our internal struggles, that few ever really see. All too often we walk around and keep most of our internal dialogue to ourselves, whether good, bad or indifferent. Stress, fear, desire, ambition, faith, joy and other factors churn within us. "Minor King" is a reflection of what I envision this internal conversation to look like visually. The result is sometimes we get caught up looking inward all the time when we should really looks around us and be present in the moment without the constant internal noise. The name comes from a song which sates "It's just a minor thing and I'm a minor king."
