Renewal 1 was painted for the Scientific Evolution show at Distinction Gallery in California. This is one of two paintings in the series.
This painting draws on the premise that one day in the future we'll be able to replace body parts with the push of a button. Inside the arm are hands in various stages of gestation and, to replace the old one (which is covered in bandages) you need only push the button. The old one simply unwinds and falls off when the new one emerges.
Renewal 1 is an acrylic on canvas painting, 18" x 12" on a double thick canvas stretcher. It comes wired and ready to hang.
