J. Steven Manolis (b. 1948-)
REDWORLD (Ferrari Wheels), 2020
Acrylic and Latex Enamel on Canvas
48 x 48 inches
The REDWORLD series started with a poem that Manolis wrote about his philosophy of life. He strongly believes that out of crisis and chaos, we can birth new dreams. Life must be lived fully and with passion. The world is full of possibilities, not limitations.
“There is a spark within each one of us that is our inner power. That spark within me is what I call my REDWORLD. It is the source of my power to choose my reaction to outside events in my life, to choose whether I will be a victim of my circumstances or whether I will take charge of the things that I can control.
My inner spark is what gives me the strength to step back and figure things out when things look bleak. That’s why REDWORLD is a coveted place to live in. I choose to live in my REDWORLD. Do you live in REDWORLD?”
Ferrari sponsored a solo show for Manolis and he painted this piece for the show.
