Fear Is Huge

Take a few minutes to appreciate one of Art Donovan’s latest pieces, titled “Fear Is Huge”.  It’s a cracked and bulging wall of swirling, ominous greys and bronzes.  Light clashes with dark, sucking everything in towards the center like a vortex.  Taxidermied black birds seem to be darting across the canvas in a mad, helter skelter manner.  The piece really captures the chaotic, confused, decaying nature of fear.



Donovan explains, “The greatest fear that all artists share is the fear of having their entire life’s work end up in obscurity and eventual ruination -or worse yet, show up at a yard sale! This work shows a deeply fractured surface, as if the painting were carelessly left outdoors to eventually rot with the help of nature.”
