It Takes Pain to Get Something Good
This original painting is part of Brad Antifolk's "Anarchy of the Abstract series" and is one of a kind. The dimensions are 12" x 12". Acrylic, ink and epoxy resin on gallery wrapped canvas. "It Takes Pain to Get Something Good" is a reference to a line in the Jenn Lindsay song "I'm Not Going Home Yet." The song is about not giving up in the face of mounting adversity and seeming hopelessness despite having an easy way out. The painting is meant to convey holding tight to your dreams (Center of the piece) even though there are options that can lead you away. The theme of the painting required the panel designs to run off the edge of the front of the canvas the first time in the series
