Art Description

Collage: Paper, Photo, Paint on Paper.

With this artwork I would like to look into what time means for Man. When we are children time has little meaning. The passage between the ages 10-20 is an infinitive process, full of meaning, new sensations and personal experiences. It is the transition between being a child to becoming an adult with different prospectives and expectations. Subjectively this period seemed interminable. At this age of life you don't have the awareness of death. At the most you think that death affects others and not you. As time passes the years pass quicker and the period between 50-60 time passes very quickly, and the ages between 60-70 time is even shorter. An old person who looks back in time says that he doesn't feel his age and that his life had passed rapidly. I think life is a race towards death. It is as if you drop a glass ball from a height, the marble accelerates its movement downwards until it touches the ground and disintegrates into thousands of pieces. This is TIMEOUT.
The painting is sold with a dark brown frame. As you can see in the photo the passe-partout is integral to the artwork.
