"Decomposition of the heart"
New works by Scott Kirschner
"There is this man with a tree branch tied to his head. The branch flourishes and bares fruit and flowers. A bird lives in a nest within this tree branch.
A serpent disguises itself as a bird wearing plumage to fool and distract the man. As the man gets close the serpent plunges into his mouth going down the throat and infested the heart. The serpent sickens the man corrupts him and forces the bird that was once happy in the tree to leave. Leaving the man sick and lonely. The man sets The tree on fire turning him and the serpent to ash in hopes of rebirth."
With this series, Scott Kirschner is working something out.. Using light, paint, graphite,charcoal and sweat, he is telling a story about love, mistakes and the demons we allow.
“I like to use symbolism that I pull from my life experiences and create an image that will then hopefully make someone stop and wonder what the story is If i am lucky the viewer will find some way to relate to the image and feel emotion from my artwork”.
