Art: Knock Down the Door

Knock Down the Door – Don’t walk away
Knock Down the Door – Don’t walk away

5th March 2016, Prismacolor pencils on A3 cartridge paper

You put up walls so people can’t come close. If they manage to get past all the bricks, fences, gates, barriers, hurdles and other obstacles, they’ll still be standing outside a locked door with a thousand locks.

You keep people away but deep down you want people to come in. You don’t want people to knock on the door and wait for you to open it. You want people to knock the door down. But when no-one even knocks, you keep the door closed.

You wonder if you should open the door first. Maybe that’s how a person should be in life. But you’re still waiting for someone to knock the door down. But then you wonder: if someone knocked the door down, wouldn’t it freak you out and you’d run behind another door? You want to find out.
