Revenge On Indian Creek is part of the Healing Series.
This series was created in response to a few traumatic events that were taking place in my life in January of 2018. One of these tragic events was a rock climbing accident that put me in the hospital and sent me home in a wheelchair for two months. Exploration of the world has always been my way of escaping my problems and frustrations, so when I wasn't able to explore and I was stuck in a house instead of the great outdoors it was up to my art to keep me sane. All of these pieces somehow represent the natural world that I so much wanted to be exploring. The rocks, sediment layers, rivers, clouds, the trees and the winds represented in my drawings are just glimpses into my mind and the places I wished to be.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC PRINT
This painting was created after my second climbing trip to Indian Creek. This was eight months after my accident and I was terrified of trad climbing again. I had been working hard to get over my PTSD with a friend Alan and his “trad camp” but it was a slow process. I went on my first trip to Indian Creek with another friend and was too scared to lead anything. The second time I went back I lead “Heinz 57”; it felt so good and I was so excited. In the painting you can see the scar-like crack that makes its way down the canvas splitting the cascading mountains and the valley. This is the climb; this is my revenge on Indian creek.
