Art Description

Painting: Spray Paint, Household, Acrylic, Paper, Pastel on Canvas.

This painting was part of the Rocking Art Exhibition held at the Karoo Art Hotel (23/12/2016 - 05/01/2017).

It is painting no. 4 from my Rock Art Series. You can read more about what this series is all about at my site: http://cherieroedirksen.com/the-rock-art-series/

This painting was subliminally/intuitively painted to the music of one of the best bands to come out of Britain.

I paint whatever the music invokes. I have blogged about the whole experience (with 'start to finish' photographs) — you can read that here: http://cherieroedirksen.com/2013/03/06/dancing-with-the-void-pink-floyd-rock-art-painting-photographs/. You can read about all the emotions that came up whilst creating this piece here: http://cherieroedirksen.com/2013/03/13/balancing-the-yin-and-yang-the-true-story-behind-dancing-in-the-void-pink-floyd/

Some of the keywords of this picture that came up were:

-Discord, revolt, rebel
-Suppressed emotion
-Metal, cold, steel, cutting, taking lives
-Centers around the Void
-Paternal painbody
-Relief to be voicing/heard
-Yin & Yang balance

This was quite a hard painting to get out, it took a lot out of me but was worth it in the end.
