  • Final Black And White Ship Of Fools 450 X 700

Additional Information

 

This lino print is also a plea for us to spend more time searching for the love that connects us all, and less time focusing on the differences that separate us.

The original inspiration for the title comes from an allegory in Plato’s Republic that has come to be known as the Ship of Fools. Interesting, this metaphor has been a recurring theme throughout the ages, with multiple references in literature, film, and music.

Ship of Fools
By Reaction Mass

We live in a culture built on a belief
That doing stuff or buying things will make us complete
So we struggle and we strive to earn fat paychecks
To take exotic trips and buy the latest gadgets

But this relentless pursuit of material things
Just leaves us wanting more and feeling so incomplete
With this void in our hearts, we don’t know what to do
So we fumble all around like a ship full of fools

My hope is that we all acknowledge this fact about ourselves, and try to spend time identifying these unconscious drives and understanding how our minds work. I think most of the problems in the world, from politics to business to our personal lives, result when we’re convinced we know what we’re doing and don’t stop to question why we act the way we do or believe what we believe. This image is a plea for us to spend more time examining ourselves, and less time trying to convince others we’re right.

Ship of Fools is an original lino cut, printed onto Fabriano paper, this is a limited edition of 10 original prints. There are four prints left for sale one framed and three unframed. Price quoted is for unframed, please contact help@artloversaustralia.com.au for price framed if preferred.
