THE ETERNAL CONTRAPOSITION BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARKNESS (2013)
80 x 160 - collage and acrylic on canvas.
Light and darkness, good and evil exist side by side, moving in parallel, not looking at each other, but trying to attract to themselves everything that comes in their way.
Man, thanks to his power of mental equilibrium, can withstand the deception of shadows and cross the line beyond which there is no room for darkness, where there is only light, where we were born, and where life is indeed possible.
(Inspired at the temple Bayon – Cambodia)
PARALLEL REALITIES (2013)
80 x 160 - acrylic on canvas.
Reality is an abstract concept; one sees what his eyes and brain tell. We believe that the eyes are telling us the truth, but our brain often distorts what was seen, under the influence of the already experienced sensations.
At the same time there are multiple realities and that perception of reality is subjective, which often creates an internal conflict.
Only wisdom and patience are able to transform the conflict essence of parallel realities into the heritage of humanity.
SIGHS OF INNOCENTS (2012)
100 x 160 - acrylic on canvas.
Painting is dedicated to those who suffered or suffers from discrimination of human justice.
Old Venice Bridge of Sighs, leading to the prison dungeons Pembo. Three masks, emitting light of innocence, lit bitter fate.
The reflection of the stars can not only give a ghostly sense of light, but also show the way to a flood of light, leading to an infinite space, to absolute freedom.
CHIEF, STRENGTH AND THOUGHTS (2012)
70 x 100 - mixed media on canvas.
Young chief is the leader of his people, whose face expresses strength and aspiration; his ancestors support him with their wisdom and point the way. Young women are the present and the future of the nation, and he is in the centre – physically strong, with a thoughtful look full of humanity, with eyes, eradiating determination and responsibility for those around him, who live next to him and depend on him. This is a message of love and devotion.
This is about the power to transcend himself in the ability to give love, to take responsibility for the fate of others. These human values never die; they are passed from generation to generation.
VIRGIN EARTH (2012)
160 x 100 - acrylic on canvas.
“Body returns to the earth, soul ascends to heaven.”
Our mortal body is part of Mother Earth, we consist of her particles; we are filled with her water, fed with her fruits. We never leave her bosom!
Let us respect our Mother, admire her natural beauty, admire with all our heart, pure as a baby; and she shall praise us to the skies!
