The Knot

The Knot“Is the bird trapped?” the man asked.

“It’s safe,” he replied.

“What happens if you pull the ends of the rope?” he asked.

“The bird will die.”

“Why?”

“There’s a knot here,” the man said, pointing at the loops of rope, “can’t you see?”

“No.”

Throughout the planning stages, my ideas for this painting evolved slightly. It started off with a messy ball of strings, and gradually got simplified into a loop of ‘knot’.
