Purchase Rise Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on Museum Natural Fine Art Paper by J.A.W. Cooper Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art.
"Rise was part of a five-piece mini-series about the stages of dealing with pain, within a larger solo show in 2013. This painting was the final stage; the triumphant rise after a crisis. The cicadas are significant, representing rebirth and metamorphosis as some species can stay dormant underground for up to 17 years until conditions are perfect and then emerge together in one epic synchronized event. True healing is not to harden externally, but to remain vulnerable and open while drawing strength from within." - J.A.W. Cooper
