Garden of Eden is a surreal piece depicting ascent and descent from heaven as connection or disconnection from the natural world. The symbol of the pheasant is used to depict nature's bounty, while modern man is depicted on the left as the pair of disembodied eyes observing this beauty from behind the leafy shadows -- originating from nature, but ultimately disconnected. My goal with this painting was to show the splendor of nature and capture the alienation we feel when we are distant from our natural mode of being.
