I was anxious to move out of my previous job and into my vocation. I was conscious of the fact that it had taken me a long time to get to this point in my life -hence, the setting sun. I was also conscious that the job I was leaving had taken a toll on me -dismembered me in a sense. The box represents the job. This, as all my paintings, is an intuitive grasp of what is happening to me at the time. It is not an illustration. The meaning of the painting arrives much later than its actual completion.
