Jon - Scorpion/Vrischika
2010
Acrylic on canvas
72" by 28"
Jon teaches yoga and is interested particularly in inversions. He is depicted in scorpion, a particularly challenging inversion. The insect the scorpion is also prominent in the image. The scorpion is a scary and intimidating creature, as is the pose (for most!). However, this painting uses repetition, balance and graphic-style imagery to portray both with calm and equanimity in the face of challenge.
