"Overbearing Presence" (Expressions of Empathy Vol. III: Human Nature vs. Nature of the Human)

Overbearing Presence

From LORD TOPH's Expressions of Empathy Vol. III: Human Nature vs. Nature of the Human


An extreme play on words is used from title to subject of this piece.  A polar bear is used to signify the polar circumstance of the goings on in this composition.  While completely out of his element, the huge bear remains confident while blowing smoke, with a rather imposing absolute assurance.

The bold colored tie, big cigar, and flashy wristwatch are but a few accessories which define the subject's character.  Heavier strokes are used on the bear to accentuate his sense of dominance. Although a thick application of paint is used in the background, the humans remain less significant in defining the theme of this work.
