Serenity by Tom Stephensen
Artist: Tom Stephensen
Medium: Acrylic on wood carving
Description: This is a wood-carved and hand-painted piece which shows a television set placed at the base of a human spinal cord. In the television set there is picture of a beautiful blue sky, a green field with a tree growing in the middle, and a peaceful cloud floating gingerly by. This is a commentary on how people are obtaining their experiences through the T.V. and internet, rather than going outside and enjoying nature in person.
