"We Build Them Just To Watch Them Fall" is a poignant oil painting on canvas that serves as a visual testament to the emotional turmoil experienced during a dark period of the artist's life. Inspired by the artist's own journey through divorce, this piece captures the raw intensity of loss, pain, and transition.
At the center of the composition stands a bridge, rendered in vivid detail against a backdrop of smoky darkness. The bridge serves as a powerful metaphor for the connections we forge in life, only to see them crumble and fall away. The artist's choice to depict the bridge engulfed in flames symbolizes the destructive force of separation and the inevitability of letting go.

As the bridge burns, a looming, dark red cloud hangs ominously in the background, casting a shadow of despair over the scene. This cloud serves as a visual representation of the lingering pain and anguish accompanying the dissolution of a marriage. Its presence evokes a sense of heaviness and foreboding, a constant reminder of the emotional toll of loss and separation.
The artist captures the tumultuous emotions of grief, anger, and acceptance through bold brushstrokes and a rich colour palette. The juxtaposition of light and shadow adds depth to the composition, highlighting the contrast between hope and despair.

"We Build Them Just To Watch Them Fall" is a deeply personal exploration of the artist's own experience of divorce and the process of letting go. It invites viewers to confront their own feelings of loss and transition, offering a glimpse into the complex and often painful journey of separation.
