Ship of Theseus

Ship of Theseus
24x36 inches, oil on canvas

Ship of Theseus is an ancient Greek myth that a replica or copy of an object may or may not contain the essences of the original. I was attempting to portray the idea of something broken in pieces, but still faintly visible. (Influences: Chuck Close, Paul Klee, Gerard Richter, Francis Bacon.)

Even if you built out the past to look exactly like the present, would the future repeat it exactly?
