drawing challenge: 163 - "key"

It's about 20 years ago that I've made these pieces.

In search for meaning and wondering why after the passing of my father.

I started with two pieces but soon I decided to combine them.
They're painted and collage, each +/- 20 x 30 cm, 8 x 12 inch.

A kind of key, a reference or a clue, and still good memories ...

And his tool was the Morse key.

And another "key" was on my mind.

Constantin Brancusi, The beginning of the world, 1916

Happy Easter to you!

you are right Eric,often an artists work may function as a key, a key to the past, a key to memories.

it's in men's nature to look for keys and clues i guess.

fine weekend to you, x

That's so true Eric. You must be so happy that you kept those two images every time you look at them and remember. I have two unfinished paintings by my late aunt. I also have dozens of finished paintings by her, but love the two unfinished ones the best. In them is the key to her technique and style. (She was a very great artist) I popped back in time, and love your stack of memories too. Hope your long Easter weekend is a wonderful one. X

wonderful to consider putting the pieces together was key to the piece. perhaps all art is like that, a bit like a combination on a lock, each number; clink, clunk, clonk and there it is open, complete.

loved seeing each piece.

A visual key to the memories of your father - this is such a beautiful interpretation of the theme.

Your collages appeared complete on their own but once they were placed one on top of the other they shifted to the full circle. Lovely work and clues/keys.
Happy Easter to you too, Eric.

mystery in yellow.
for keys can lead to mysteries.

Often a key. It is the tool to move from one space to another but also from one moment to another, or from one state to another. and after a death of a loved one, surely, we pass (like opening a door with a key) to another time, new and different, in our lives.
