Abstract expression – He is not coming back – The final of a series of four
This is the final work in the series of digital abstract expressionist artworks by Bert Ernie. These paintings are an attempt to express the meaning of life, living and death. They try and show what it is to be human.
Human lives are incredibly complex. We have a range of emotions from extremes of sadness to exhilarating joy. These emotions are intertwined and connected to the rich tapestry of human experiences as we travel through life.
Bert’s brother Luke passed away on April 15th 2016. These four digital abstract works of art are extremely powerful works of art. They are great metaphors for the human existence. Complex, dynamic, convoluted, joyous and sad these are the elements that make up every humans life. Bert believes there is no better way to express these powerful emotions than with abstract expressionism.
Bert’s brother Luke has left behind many loving family and friends.
He failed to see how much we all loved him.
He failed to see how much potential he had.
He isn’t coming back.
His mother won’t see him come through the front door of her home.
Bert won’t get to go the gym and do any weight training with him.
His friends and family will miss him every day.
This painting (and the others in the series) is about life, living and death.
