Thinking about death painting Marnie Pitts

 

"Thinking about death trying to live life"

Oil on wood

Inside the box is a reminder of our mortality. A young girl transforms in steps towards a skeleton. This skeleton reaches out towards the hands opening the box and as their fingers touch the light illuminates the reality of death. While at the same time this sparks the need to make sure we make good use of our remaining time and live fully.
