“The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace”. Carlos Santana
A significant older work painted in 2012. The original has never been available for sale and kept as an investment piece in the artist's collection until now.
"All of me" will only be available during our Birthday show from the 15th of May until 19 June along with a few selected pieces from Santie’s collection.
About the piece
“All of me” is a story we can all relate to when we leave the securities of home to explore our dreams. Leaving home for many is an exhilarating but also overwhelming experience. We take with us what little posessions we have accumulated. Some of us leave, but stay in our countries of birth and some of us leave the shores of our country.
Symbolically this story tells of our ‘coming of age’. Guided by what has been taught and our own intuition. Trusting within, that the path we chose was the right decision we made.
Size: (w)510mm x (w)405mm on stretched canvas, ready to hang.
