The Hanging

Name of Artist: Ernest Agoba
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size: 72″ inches x 48″ inches

like the sword of Damocles, “The Hanging” portrays the threats that loom and hang over us in our modern day.¬† While the metaphor of the hanging clock illustrates arms that are larger than the circumference of its circular body, an arm of this clock¬† cleaves to the shadow of man forever. Man who cannot be detached from time, and from the actions of his past, faces a foreboding storm that occasions his harmful activities on earth. The symbol of the clock, with oversized arms, is a clarion call on man to find means of mitigating the emergencies and threats of our time.
