About The Artwork: 

"Release, Run, Retrieve, Repeat" is a surreal black-and-white illustration that captures the power of flight and freedom. Featuring a bow and arrow with the head of an eagle and flames coming out of its wings, this artwork invites viewers to take part in a journey toward self-discovery.

The arrow represents focus, direction, and a sense of purpose, as it is aimed toward a specific target. The bow symbolizes strength, resilience, and the ability to bend without breaking. Together, the bow and arrow represent the balance of power and control and the idea of achieving one's goals through focused effort and skill. In some cultures, the bow and arrow represent spiritual growth and development, as the archer must cultivate discipline and self-awareness to accurately hit their mark.

In many spiritual traditions, feathers symbolize communication with the divine or spiritual realms, as they are believed to be a vehicle for messages from the spirit world. When feathers are depicted as flames, this can be seen as a powerful representation of transformation and purification. Fire is often associated with the burning away of old or negative energies to make way for new growth and vitality. Feathers that look like flames can be seen as a symbol of change, rebirth, and the transformative power of spiritual growth.

In Native American cultures, feathers with flame-like designs are sometimes associated with the Phoenix. This mythical bird is reborn from its ashes, symbolizing resurrection, regeneration, and triumph over adversity.

Together, these elements may represent the pursuit of one's goals with the unwavering focus and strength of an eagle fueled by passion and intensity.

"And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about." — John Steinbeck
