Artist Description

“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” –1 Timothy 6: 9-10

As stated by the wisest and wealthiest man in the Holy Bible, King Solomon, nothing is as banal and meaningless as unhealthy love of money. The unhealthy love of money is one of the banalities of evil in our daily lives which influenced my painting—“The Bait.”
