figurative oil painting of man wearing suit falling by artist Lori Markman
Dad
Oil On Canvas
48 inches x 48 inches
2006

This painting was done after my Dad had a stroke. In it, I tried to express the sense of dislocation, of falling into the vacant abyss of his own mortality, ungrounded, unmoored.
