When one eventually dies, are they still with us spiritually?

Madison LaRose


In this painting I had wanted to display how nature can represent the human psychology, and show the tensions between us and our environment. As inspiration for this piece I had read the poetry of William Wordsworth, who presents nature as a way to engulf one’s soul after death. I wanted to display that even though the person in this painting has passed away, they are still with us spiritually. Although, death is a tragic part of the human condition it can also be beautiful. I wanted to show that this person is now thriving in nature, and at peace.
