The Blind Leading the Blind

  • Description

    Influenced by Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s painting with the same title, Grebe's take on The Blind Leading the Blind is a reflection on how unwise it can be to lead yourself into personal growth without seeking outside help. It’s nearly impossible and usually leads you on a path to further destruction. The eyes in both figures are cloudy, and the body language is almost zombie-like. The color palette of the figure’s skin tone on the left is cooler than the one on the right, depicting weakness and isolation. She grips onto the warmer-fleshed figure on the right, attempting to pull her down the same path.

    The Blind Leading the Blind is a self portrait of the artist.
