upcoming show: FEAR

"Silkworm" - Acrylic and Oil on Canvas, 56"x64"

The above painting, one of my latest, will be on display in an upcoming show being put on by The University of Michigan's Art and Design Gallery.  The following description is from their website:

Potentially, a new year brings new promise, new resolve, new hope, new vitality.  But it also holds new fears.  Is fear a useful emotion?  Isn't our very survival dependent upon fear?  Keeping us from walking into oncoming traffic, stepping off of rooftops and carelessly handling poisonous snakes.  Is fear as powerful and beneficial a motivating factor as more positive emotions?

What do you fear? What do you think others fear?
What, if anything, should we all fear?

January 10th-February 13th
