"This too shall pass" (Persian: این نیز بگذرد, Hebrew: גם זה יעבור, Turkish: Bu da geçer) is a proverb indicating that all material conditions, positive or negative, are temporary. The phrase seems to have originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets, and is often attached to a fable of a great king who is humbled by the simple words.Powderered pigment and solvents baked on aluminium.

The image reminds me of flesh and blood, showing lot of emotion and....pain?
its quite expressive image.
same thing of what I commented on the other piece, untitled 2, but the composition of "2" is more my thing, stronger, my opinion.
i love this one.....very passionate!
True, it is very passionate and it is about pain. To me it is all about the feeling of being 'caged' in your own body and being desperate to break free from that!
I agree abotu the flesh and blood in this work - really visceral but also seductive and lush somehow.
Lia: The beauty of this image removes it from abstraction into the realm of high aesthetics!!
The multiple meaning of the verb "pass", and the multiple meaning of the unfinished square, and the greatness of Lia's unique technology - merge in a combination for trying one's wits and feelings...
Great piece !
Another strong composition here Lia, and again, the fluidity of the line is mesmerising. I agree that the colours you've used add a visceral quality to the work. Love it.
